The Department of Doubs is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Raphaël Bartolt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.809 billion Doubistes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Besançon. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Doubien economy, worth 496 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,547 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, the newest shade developed by Doubs's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doubs's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Doubs is ranked 12,923rd in the world and 283rd in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 16.8 billion Capita.
