The Federation of Doravo is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Viktor Kravchenko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 986 million Doravans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vorkuta. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Doravan economy, worth 60.8 trillion FDSR Credits 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Tourism, and Trout Farming. 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 61,644 FDSR Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former slaves find themselves being herded onto ships once more, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and people who have lived their entire lives in Doravo are shocked to discover that they are not citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Doravo's national animal is the Black Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Doravo is ranked 87,776th in the world and 67th in The Western Isles for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,384.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
