The Federation of Duinhironia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Oswald Duinhirson with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.431 billion Duinhironians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kultainen. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Duinhironian economy, worth a remarkable 3,366 trillion Duinhirian Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 294,480 Duinhirian Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and everybody's got wood thanks to Prime Minister Oswald Duinhirson. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duinhironia's national animal is the Phenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duinhironia is ranked 852nd in the world and 10th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 11,459.6 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
