The People's Republic of Durntoy is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Harambe with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 1.781 billion monkies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monkayville. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Durntoyian economy, worth 152 trillion monk coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,689 monk coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, Monkies have become death, the destroyer of worlds, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", and women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Durntoy's national animal is the monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Durntoy is ranked 91,170th in the world and 315th in Conch Kingdom for Smartest Citizens, with 34.19 quips per hour.
