The Republic of Durglyland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.19 billion Durglylandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durglyburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Durglylandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,536 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 296,069 guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,734,420 per year while the poor average 23,665, a ratio of 73.3 to 1.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Durglylandians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and behind every local dictator is a Durglylandian advisor whispering in their ear. Crime is totally unknown. Durglyland's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Durglyland is ranked 190,094th in the world and 8,246th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.9 Crimes Per Hour.
