The Dictatorship of Duby
“You're Not Important”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Location: Conch Kingdom
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Dictatorship of Duby is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Adalard Romano with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.88 billion Dubyians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romagrad. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Dubyian economy, worth 328 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,737 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duby's national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
