Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Stratocracy of Duzels is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.205 billion Duzelsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sombrero City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 trillion Bitss a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,275 Bitss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, and it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duzels's national animal is the Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 80,777th in the world and 50th in Pony Lands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 227.95 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
