The Queen's State of Durholm is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 10.177 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, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The powerhouse Durholmian economy, worth 569 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 Cheese Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 55,979 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 198,151 per year while the poor average 11,418, 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 25,179th in the world and 299th in Purgatory for Highest Economic Output, with 569 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
