The Sovereign Island Empire of Dzosk is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Íla Dalíl Olavbjétress with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.971 billion Dossians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maréjn. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dossian economy, worth 577 trillion Jurns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,153 Jurns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dzosk's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Afterlife.

Dzosk is ranked 86,384th in the world and 3,015th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 20.2 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
