The Card Trader and Party Land of Durkenshtan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Party King Josh Wilkins with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.712 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swag City. The average income tax rate is 56.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Durkenshtanian economy, worth 983 trillion durken-danks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 127,492 durken-danks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. 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 1,409th in the world and 1st in Cardly Working for Most Inclusive, scoring 327.66 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
