Dormill and Stiura

Population14.526 billion

CapitalCour Rouge
LeaderPresident Cedar Dyson


The United Republics of Dormill and Stiura is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Cedar Dyson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.526 billion Dormill-Stiuraians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cour Rouge. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Doraltic economy, worth a remarkable 4,282 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 294,782 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', President Cedar Dyson is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime is totally unknown. Dormill and Stiura's national animal is the Hound-Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dormill and Stiura is ranked 265,940th in the world and 240th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -347.84 on the Hayek Index.
