The Proletariat Empire of New Dudley is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor of the Proletariat Dylan Cook with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.123 billion pissed off coal miners 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dylodia. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong pissed off economy, worth 216 trillion Coal Pounds 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. 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 impressive 101,820 Coal Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The giant 80-storey carving of Emperor of the Proletariat Dylan Cook in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, slackers at work are told to "crack on with it", schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Dudley's national animal is the House Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of the Working Man's God.

New Dudley is ranked 84,445th in the world and 2,605th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.61 Bank.
