The Principality of Dorianopolis is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 647 million Dorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Logos. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Dorian economy, worth 74.9 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,705 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorianopolis's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dorianopolis is ranked 65,233rd in the world and 16th in Official European Union for Most Stationary, with 115.26341928692 Days.
