Imperial States of Duotona

Population1.708 billion

CapitalSt Hubert
LeaderJames Simpson


The Honey Infused Federation of Imperial States of Duotona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Simpson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.708 billion Duotonans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Hubert. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duotonan economy, worth 225 trillion Duonas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,967 Duonas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, the government is giving peace a chance, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown. Imperial States of Duotona's national animal is the bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mammalicism.

Imperial States of Duotona is ranked 5,046th in the world and 48th in Forest for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 19 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
