The Stalker Owl of Duolingo-Owl is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Duo with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.223 billion your families are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Your lessons. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.3%.

The very strong Duolingo-Owlian economy, worth 61.9 trillion xps a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 50,618 xps, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 163,594 per year while the poor average 11,836, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, Duo has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, Duolingo-Owl has designated Your lessons as its capital city, and Duo is the self-declared God of all Duolingo-Owl. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duolingo-Owl's national animal is the owl, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is It's Spanish or Vanish.

Duolingo-Owl is ranked 180,605th in the world and 2,202nd in Artificial Solar System for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
