The Workers' Commune of Dura Europa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sébastien Faure with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.012 billion Dura Europans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Europa Major. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dura Europan economy, worth 390 trillion Europas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,810 Europas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Dura Europans made a dessert and called it peace, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, and the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish. Crime is totally unknown. Dura Europa's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Workers' Faith.

Dura Europa is ranked 119,896th in the world and 431st in The Communist Bloc for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
