The Grand Duchy of Dauershire
“Pax melior est quam iustissimum bellum.”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.948 billion Dauershireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 8,204 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 234,757 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and Leader is considering changing the Dauershirean flag to one with more glitter. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dauershire's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
