The Republic of Durlia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.496 billion Durlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durlia Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,908 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,732 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, no one born in Durlia can fix a leaky faucet, the people of Durlia are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime is totally unknown. Durlia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durlia is ranked 97,047th in the world and 815th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
