The Constitutional Monarchy of Dorenstad is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 771 million Dorens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brielle. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dorenstadian economy, worth 88.4 trillion Ruilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,642 Ruilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime is almost non-existent. Dorenstad's national animal is the White-Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dorenstad is ranked 14,205th in the world and 277th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 87.68 on the Human Development Index.
