The House of Doughertania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dagon with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.765 billion Doughertanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous 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 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Doughertanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Docdollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,769 Docdollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 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 well-funded 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 13,039th in the world and 625th in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.39 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
