The Kingdom of Dawsinian is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Dawson I with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.798 billion Dawsinians 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 minute, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town's End. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Dawsinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,166 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,436 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, postcards from Dawsinian driving test centres are popular souvenirs, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, and pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Dawsinian roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dawsinian's national animal is the Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Dawsinian is ranked 7,545th in the world and 16th in Wintreath for Highest Economic Output, with 2,166 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
