The Party Land of Durkenshtan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Party King Josh Wilkins with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.091 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 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durkenshtanian economy, worth 868 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 common. Average income is an impressive 122,529 durken-danks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Party King Josh Wilkins's wardrobe, and Party King Josh Wilkins's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. 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 166,267th in the world and 6,940th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -15.62 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
