The GGness of Dotangina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Icefrog with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.127 billion Dotanginans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancients. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dotanginan economy, worth a remarkable 4,119 trillion Golds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,466 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, and police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone. Crime is totally unknown. Dotangina's national animal is the Creep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dotangina is ranked 955th in the world and 32nd in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 905.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
