The United Confederation of Dowaesk is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ahmed Khoussary ibn Al-Qarnayn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.837 billion Dowains love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhance City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dowaeskian economy, worth 610 trillion Rufiyaas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 159,007 Rufiyaas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and Ahmed Khoussary ibn Al-Qarnayn has promised 'power to the puppies'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dowaesk's national animal is the Red Snapper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Dowaesk is ranked 262,327th in the world and 8,863rd in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
