The Dictatorship of Dunia gook is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.641 billion duns 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamayim. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient dunin economy, worth 168 trillion gooks 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 63,895 gooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have never heard foreign radio, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dunia gook's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dunia gook is ranked 227,476th in the world and 7,167th in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
