The City of Douala is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a leader with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 22.874 billion Doualans 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, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douala. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Doualan economy, worth a remarkable 3,348 trillion xafs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,402 xafs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 431,467 per year while the poor average 39,089, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, fat-shaming is now public policy, and male tourists tend to be fearful of Douala's deadly femme fatales. Crime is a serious problem. Douala's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Douala is ranked 42,927th in the world and 2nd in West Africa for Rudest Citizens, with 73.76 Insults Per Minute.
