The Kingdom of Dunferm is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Alexander II of Dunferm with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.63 billion Dunfermians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenspire. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dunfermian economy, worth 172 trillion royal florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,854 royal florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Ravenspire Times is sold out, people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dunferm's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Dunferm is ranked 174,970th in the world and 57th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Primitive, scoring -145.1 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
