The Merchant Federation of Durius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Serene Doge with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.767 billion Duriusians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand City of Durius. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duriusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,297 trillion Hours a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,723 Hours, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

"Serene Doge got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. Crime is totally unknown. Durius's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Durius is ranked 3,973rd in the world and 67th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 20,385.33 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
