The Confederacy of The Dodo Republic is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 286 million Dodoians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Valkyrie. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dodo Republician economy, worth 30.8 trillion Raptor pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 107,607 Raptor pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 799,883 per year while the poor average 4,282, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in The Dodo Republic to be bombproof, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. 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.

The Dodo Republic is ranked 213,029th in the world and 63rd in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Primitive, scoring -146.22 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
