LeaderEkyul Dubanto


The Free Land of Dubant is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ekyul Dubanto with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.688 billion Dubantians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubo. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dubantian economy, worth 794 trillion tugriks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,307 tugriks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Edutainment video games are taking Dubant's students to the next level, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dubant's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Dubant is ranked 258,492nd in the world and 6,128th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.8 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
