The Liberal Socialist Republic of Durnil Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Barnie Senders with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.061 billion Durnil Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drewnia. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Durnil Islandsian economy, worth 98.2 trillion Drews a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 92,524 Drews, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Durnil Islands's national animal is the Drew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liberalism.

Durnil Islands is ranked 211,893rd in the world and 6th in New California for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
