The Confederacy of The Dodo Republic is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Robert Ross with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.028 billion Dodoians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Valkyrie. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dodoian economy, worth a remarkable 1,425 trillion Raptor pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,433 Raptor pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dodo Republic's national animal is the Dodo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dodoian Catholicism.

The Dodo Republic is ranked 19,740th in the world and 12th in The Pangaean Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 343,856 Standard Monetary Units.
