Dougherty

The Dominion of Dougherty is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 14 million Doughertese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.8%.

The Doughertese economy, worth 496 billion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,498 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, voting is compulsory, the Peregrine Falcon is a protected species, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dougherty's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dougherty is ranked 129,404th in the world and 3,905th in the Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 60.37 law-abiding acts per hour.
