The Underground Cities of Durcane is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Head Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.56 billion 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 Council Building. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durcanian economy, worth 287 trillion E-Cashes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,153 E-Cashes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime is totally unknown. Durcane's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Durcane is ranked 13,569th in the world and 1st in New Epinadia for Most Politically Free, scoring 87.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
