The Grand Duchy of Damerloodds is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consuls with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 1.368 billion Damerloodds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damerloodds City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Damerloodd economy, worth 191 trillion ducats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,817 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Damerloodds's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Damerloodds is ranked 201,035th in the world and 460th in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.41 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
