Durkadurkiranistan II

Population11.188 billion


The Swell person of Durkadurkiranistan II is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.188 billion Durkadurkiranistan IIians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Durkadurkiranistan IIian economy, worth 693 trillion Verduns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,977 Verduns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, the government has the power to seize property at will, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durkadurkiranistan II's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Durkadurkiranistan II is ranked 149,886th in the world and 4,439th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -53.89 on the Hayek Index.
