The Epochist Democratic Republic of Dowaesk is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ahmed Khoussary ibn Al-Qarnayn with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.111 billion Dhuvaans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jhance City. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dowaeskian economy, worth 134 trillion Dubblers 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 121,171 Dubblers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and Mountain Goats are considered a delicacy. 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 Mountain Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Dowaesk is ranked 88,814th in the world and 2,289th in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,465.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
