The Democratic Republic of Doxstern is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mark Backles with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.945 billion Doxsternians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gray Clay. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Doxsternian economy, worth 214 trillion Chronics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 72,802 Chronics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Doxsternians marry themselves', the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doxstern's national animal is the Doxsternian Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Doxstern is ranked 206,403rd in the world and 328th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
