The People's Republic of Duryanistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 523 million Duryanis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashgar. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Duryani economy, worth 49.4 trillion dirhams a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,486 dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised", biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, untold millions of dirhams are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duryanistan's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Duryanistan is ranked 61,902nd in the world and 2,216th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 24.97 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
