The Federal Provinces of Dorsla is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dircya T Rubino with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.931 billion Dorsliav love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diversunytoa. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Dorsliak economy, worth 187 trillion pecunis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,879 pecunis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children fear compulsory visits to their spiritual advisors more than the dentist, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, anti-government web sites are springing up, and civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorsla's national animal is the jungle monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Equality.

Dorsla is ranked 41,403rd in the world and 2nd in 1st Epitome United for Most Influential, scoring 648 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
