The Kingdom of Dounkoist is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Majesty King Mitchell with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.762 billion Dounkoistians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vukmont. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dounkoistian economy, worth 378 trillion marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,177 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bris parties are all the rage, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dounkoist's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dounkoist is ranked 37,030th in the world and 4th in Union of the Kind Ones for Highest Economic Output, with 378 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
