The Constitutional Monarchy of Dorenstad is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 674 million Dorens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brielle. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Dorenstadian economy, worth 77.4 trillion Ruilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,906 Ruilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, discarded pennies litter the streets, hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Leader day after day, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is almost non-existent. Dorenstad's national animal is the White-Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
