Dvoraking Sanguine IV

Population222 million

AnimalEnglish Mastiff

The Grand Duchy of Dvoraking Sanguine IV is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 222 million Dvoraking Sanguine IVians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dvoraking Sanguine IVian economy, worth 2.57 trillion Deneroes 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, Retail, and Soda Sales. 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 11,557 Deneroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dvoraking Sanguine IV's national animal is the English Mastiff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dvoraking Sanguine IV is ranked 131,619th in the world and 83rd in From The End for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
