The Consulate of Doundaly is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by First Consul Nolen Plantage with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.153 billion Doundalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Doundalian economy, worth 611 trillion galds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,738 galds, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

National park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, edutainment video games are taking Doundaly's students to the next level, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doundaly's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult Of Shrek.

Doundaly is ranked 24,320th in the world and 537th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 31.25 flags saluted per person per day.
