The GGness of Dotangina is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Icefrog with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.682 billion Dotanginans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancients. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dotanginan economy, worth a remarkable 4,582 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 259,175 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Icefrog's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Dotangina. Crime is totally unknown. Dotangina's national animal is the Creep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dotangina is ranked 63,814th in the world and 1,385th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 179.68428083532 Days.
