The Queen's State of Durholm is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 12.424 billion Durholmians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The powerhouse Durholmian economy, worth 670 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 53,997 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 191,134 per year while the poor average 11,014, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Durholm's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durholm is ranked 199,931st in the world and 47th in Western Africa for Safest, scoring 7.24 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
