The Democratic Republic of Durchhalten is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Hans Helmuth with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.156 billion Durchmen 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 62.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durchhalten economy, worth 701 trillion Äras a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,978 Äras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durchhalten's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Durchhalten Lutheran Church.

Durchhalten is ranked 28,775th in the world and 3rd in Gruccigangia for Largest Governments, scoring 22.74 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
