The House of Doughertania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dagon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.014 billion Doughertanians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Haven. The average income tax rate is 75.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Doughertanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 trillion Docdollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,659 Docdollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, nude art is becoming wildly popular, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doughertania's national animal is the Bread Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Doughertania is ranked 157,256th in the world and 4,860th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.57 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
