The Republic of Duma is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Oliver Zat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.683 billion Dumen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xiamen. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Duman economy, worth 168 trillion Renminbis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 100,107 Renminbis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All guns must be registered, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, military spending is on the increase, and the official Duman Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duma's national animal is the Giant Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duma is ranked 198,828th in the world and 89th in Geopolity for Fattest Citizens, with 8.04 Obesity Rate.
