Location: South Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Dules is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its enforced nudity and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.511 billion Dulesians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Dulesian economy, worth 315 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. Average income is 33,214 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, swines are considered a delicacy, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Dules's national animal is the swine, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dules is ranked 15,931st in the world and 8th in South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,288.32 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
