The Confederacy of Dovarrin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jefferson Davis with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.284 billion Dovarrinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richmond. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The large but inefficient Dovarrinian economy, worth 556 trillion Confederate Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,169 Confederate Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" 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. Dovarrin's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Hellenistic-Pagan Catholicism.

Dovarrin is ranked 129,083rd in the world and 33rd in Taijitu for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
