The Republic of Doundaly is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Edmo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.473 billion Doundalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 55.5%.

The thriving Doundalian economy, worth 115 trillion galds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,556 galds, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, Doundaly Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and former royals stand on the street corner with signs reading "will cut ribbons for money". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doundaly's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Doundaly is ranked 210,565th in the world and 8,056th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 14 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
