The Amazing Nation of Dorab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tom Scott with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.653 billion Dorabis love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of L'nup. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dorabi economy, worth 610 trillion Gold Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,981 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in L'nup, and it's always rabbit season. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorab's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dorab is ranked 11,108th in the world and 214th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 87.4 quips per hour.
