|Leader||President Toivo Kallionpää|
The People's Republic of Duravia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by President Toivo Kallionpää with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 814 million 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durapolis. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Duravian economy, worth 90.4 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,082 Duravian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Duravia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. 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.
