The People's Republic of Duravia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Toivo Kallionpää with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.265 billion Duravians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durapolis. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duravian economy, worth 153 trillion Duravian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,468 Duravian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duravia's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Democratic socialism.

Duravia is ranked 19,501st in the world and 103rd in The Internationale for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 16,652.46 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
