The Republic of The Dodo Was Here is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dodo with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.996 billion Dodoes 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dodo Was Herean economy, worth a remarkable 1,603 trillion feathers 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. 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 amazing 200,506 feathers, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, polygamy is legal, and the comic book series 'Dodo and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dodo Was Here's national animal is the dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Birdwatching.

The Dodo Was Here is ranked 26,197th in the world and 335th in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 1,261 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
