The WELCOME HOME of Duxburian Union is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aelir Avoldran Dehn am Nevian with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 33.117 billion Duxburians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dairghazbury. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Duxburian economy, worth an astonishing 11,639 trillion Kaels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 351,462 Kaels, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Aelir Avoldran Dehn am Nevian on Duxburian Union's coulrophobia epidemic. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Duxburian Union's national animal is the Valkyrie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dalaenism.

Duxburian Union is ranked 241,935th in the world and 112th in European Union for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -43.7 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
