The Party Land of Durkenshtan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Party King Josh Wilkins with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.072 billion guidos and potheads hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swag City. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durkenshtanian economy, worth 742 trillion durken-danks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,334 durken-danks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Party Pooper Pony Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Durkenshtan's national animal is the party pooper pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Rastapartyism.

Durkenshtan is ranked 13,116th in the world and 2nd in Imperial Roman Coprosperity Sphere for Most Armed, with 12 Weapons Per Person.
