The United Technocratic States of Durmatagno is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vord DeVella with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.988 billion Durmainians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amethyst Woods. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durmainian economy, worth a remarkable 4,703 trillion Crystals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,912 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, Durmainian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Vord DeVella, and the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Durmatagno has found 1 easter egg). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durmatagno's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Durmatagno is ranked 41,238th in the world and 60th in Yggdrasil for Most Patriotic, with 22.63 flags saluted per person per day.
