Dunia gook

Population3.211 billion



The Dictatorship of Dunia gook is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.211 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamayim. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong dunin economy, worth 249 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 77,573 gooks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, populations of two-headed leopards have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, Duns believe manners maketh the leader, and the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells. 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 230,331st in the world and 7,533rd in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 4.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
