The State of Dongerland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aleksander Androsov Tito Vespucci with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.555 billion Dongerlandians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tziporah. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Dongerlandian economy, worth 228 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,282 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dongerland's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Dongerland is ranked 71,262nd in the world and 106th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 228 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
