The Constitutional Monarchy of Dotian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by PM Liw Wick with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.85 billion Dotians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saendevik. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Dotianian economy, worth 405 trillion kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 83,541 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dotian's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Niceness.

Dotian is ranked 247,252nd in the world and 6,800th in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
