The Benevolent Dictatorship of The Dourian Embassy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Treize Dreizehn with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.392 billion Dourians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dourian economy, worth a remarkable 3,768 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 304,102 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (The Dourian Embassy has found 4 easter eggs), the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Douria's water use. Crime is totally unknown. The Dourian Embassy's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Holy Thirteen.

The Dourian Embassy is ranked 138,659th in the world and 4,123rd in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 11.66 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
