The Community of Doriander is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.447 billion Dorianderians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dorianderian economy, worth 174 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 120,937 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, graffiti graces every city's streets, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. Doriander's national animal is the panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Doriander is ranked 7,949th in the world and 231st in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 103.45 quips per hour.
