The Dictatorship of Duke Dorian von Wolfslippen-Lowenplatz is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 565 million Goths are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 38.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 14.8 trillion royal spoons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,223 royal spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending recently hit a new high and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duke Dorian von Wolfslippen-Lowenplatz's national animal is the raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Duke Dorian von Wolfslippen-Lowenplatz is ranked 214,111th in the world and 24th in The Sportsbook for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -10.95 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
