East Durthang

Population15.963 billion

LeaderLord of Darkness


The Pacifican Empire of East Durthang is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord of Darkness with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 15.963 billion East Durthangians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valmar. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong East Durthangian economy, worth 850 trillion denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 53,254 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Durthang's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

East Durthang is ranked 28,875th in the world and 682nd in the Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 49.97 quips per hour.
