The Yao Ming Dynasty Republic of Duracell is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mario Yoshi Yao Ming Jeremy Lin III with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 15.182 billion Duracellians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Super Mario City. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duracellian economy, worth a remarkable 2,716 trillion Yoshis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 178,957 Yoshis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, it's never "just a game" with Duracellian sports fans, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duracell's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sports and Video Games Religion.

Duracell is ranked 2,728th in the world and 58th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 4,999.4 Prayers Per Hour.
