The Northern Territory of Durcane is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Snowy Snowman with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 834 million Durcanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castellia. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durcanian economy, worth 92.3 trillion Tundra Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 110,726 Tundra Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase President Snowy Snowman's majority, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and schoolchildren are taught to boo and hiss at President Snowy Snowman's name. Crime is totally unknown. Durcane's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durcane is ranked 16,080th in the world and 4th in The Embassy for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,142.44 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
