The Dictatorship of Dunia gook is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.985 billion duns are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamayim. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient dunin economy, worth 90.7 trillion gooks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,689 gooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, people who have lived their entire lives in Dunia gook are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, and people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dunia gook's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dunia gook is ranked 78,678th in the world and 2,714th in Osiris for Most Primitive, scoring -26.06 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
