The Confederacy of Dovarrin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jefferson Davis with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.48 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 94.4%.

The large but inefficient Dovarrinian economy, worth 623 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 73,520 Confederate Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the 'sing-a-long with Jefferson Davis' album is a popular souvenir, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. 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 15,032nd in the world and 793rd in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 72.16 Quips Per Hour.
