The Republic of Durfia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.55 billion Durfians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durfian economy, worth 765 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,289 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Recognizing the Durfian flag qualifies you for citizenship, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Durfia's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Durfia is ranked 200,282nd in the world and 6,864th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.04 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
