The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.336 billion Dauershireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 8,187 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 231,717 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and Leader is considering changing the Dauershirean flag to one with more glitter. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dauershire's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dauershire is ranked 4,290th in the world and 27th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,903.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
