The Republic of Durfia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.437 billion Durfians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durfian economy, worth 360 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,773 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Durfians, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and edutainment video games are taking Durfia's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Durfia's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durfia is ranked 63,142nd in the world and 2,466th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,730 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
