The Disgustingly Horrifying Land of Dauq is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Bob Dandy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.882 billion Daucians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dandyland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Daucian economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion Gold Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 133,600 Gold Standards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 692,858 per year while the poor average 13,958, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, net monetary worth and net moral worth are considered to be directly equivalent, and the unemployed are quite literally sold to the highest bidder. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dauq's national animal is the Dandy Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dauq is ranked 16,920th in the world and 1st in Vaul Koras for Most Developed, scoring 78.67 on the Human Development Index.
