The Physician's Oath of DoNoHarm is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Doctor with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.057 billion patients are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Surgery. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The large but sluggish DoNoHarmian economy, worth 486 trillion mgs of olanzapine a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Furniture Restoration and Basket Weaving. 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 60,358 mgs of olanzapine, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love The Doctor, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and the new intercity submarine SSN Lab Rat Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DoNoHarm's national animal is the lab rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is enlightened science.

DoNoHarm is ranked 48,141st in the world and 123rd in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,184.05 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
