The Kingdom of Doroth is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 667 million Dorothans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DuckS greatest lake duh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.1%.

The strong Dorothian economy, worth 57.8 trillion DuckS Fearhers 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. 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 86,667 DuckS Fearhers, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media, most pop videos prominently feature the Dorothian flag, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doroth's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Doroth is ranked 165,787th in the world and 2nd in Peace Ducks of The World for Most Pro-Market, scoring -55.88 on the Rand Index.
