The Yao Ming Dynasty Republic of Duracell is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mario Yoshi Yao Ming Jeremy Lin III with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 21.041 billion Duracellians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Super Mario City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Duracellian economy, worth a remarkable 3,715 trillion Yoshis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,577 Yoshis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duracell's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sports and Video Games Religion.

Duracell is ranked 15,313th in the world and 286th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 24,678.24 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
