Location: The North Pacific



Population558 million



The People's Republic of Duryanistan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 558 million Duryanis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashgar. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Duryani economy, worth 53.5 trillion dirhams a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,899 dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A nation-wide cull of falcons is in effect, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duryanistan's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Duryanistan is ranked 212,555th in the world and 7,863rd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -145.19 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
