The Empire of Deurthe is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 663 million Deurtheans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Deurthean economy, worth 76.1 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,760 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 360,444 per year while the poor average 27,976, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Deurthe's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Deurthe is ranked 73,848th in the world and 3,416th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,473.18 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
