The Fury of Dahom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Al-Anazi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.122 billion Dahomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of Dahom. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dahomian economy, worth 726 trillion Moneyzes 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 141,805 Moneyzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dahom's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Our religion.

Dahom is ranked 79,618th in the world and 3,714th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 21.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
