The 2nd Yeopcracy of Durkaberka da Explora is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emir Downtown Abdullah Brown with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.011 billion Durks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muckaa. The average income tax rate is 86.6%.

The frighteningly efficient DurkaBerkeseei economy, worth a remarkable 1,287 trillion Coins of Many Sizeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Uranium Mining, Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 116,967 Coins of Many Sizeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, Holy Emir Downtown Abdullah Brown's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and DurkaBerkeseei junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durkaberka da Explora's national animal is the Malteses Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Temple of the Golden Calf.

Durkaberka da Explora is ranked 200,211th in the world and 399th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
