The Confederacy of Dus Pigh is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 502 million Dus Pighians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Dus Pighian economy, worth 17.6 trillion revolutionary credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 35,136 revolutionary credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime is totally unknown. Dus Pigh's national animal is the shrike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dus Pigh is ranked 58,922nd in the world and 47th in Grace of Gaia for Largest Governments, scoring 17 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
