The Republic of Dorson is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 691 million Dorsonians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorson City. The average income tax rate is 17.3%.

The thriving Dorsonian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 75,263 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Dorson, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorson's national animal is the Dorson Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dorson is ranked 135,202nd in the world and 5,770th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.34 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
