The Divine Cabaret of Friends of Dorothy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 31.264 billion Dorotheans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Cartso. The average income tax rate is 37.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Dorothean economy, worth a remarkable 3,054 trillion sequins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 97,691 sequins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and army doctors who come under attack defend themselves by using stethoscopes like nunchaku. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Friends of Dorothy's national animal is the male, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Friends of Dorothy is ranked 159,848th in the world and 40th in Nudist Dreamland for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 61.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
