East Durthang

Population11.867 billion

LeaderLord of Darkness


The Lucky Holy Pacifican Empire of East Durthang is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord of Darkness with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 11.867 billion East Durthangians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valmar. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong East Durthangian economy, worth 561 trillion denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 47,353 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Durthang's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

East Durthang is ranked 194,025th in the world and 6,065th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -37.84 on the Hayek Index.
