The Commonwealth of Dzurvia is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Dzurvian Legislature with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 906 million Dzurvians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nishijiroki. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dzurvian economy, worth 88.5 trillion Ryus a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,729 Ryus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Ryus to support "struggling" industries, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dzurvia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dzurvia is ranked 17,380th in the world and 228th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.81 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
