The People's Republic of Duravia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Toivo Kallionpää with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.219 billion Duravians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durapolis. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duravian economy, worth 277 trillion Duravian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,047 Duravian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duravia's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Democratic socialism.

Duravia is ranked 12,922nd in the world and 67th in The Internationale for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,888.34 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
