The Peoples Front of Darunia

Population109 million


The Dictatorship of The Peoples Front of Darunia is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 109 million Darunians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Darunian economy, worth 4.84 trillion Pelts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,437 Pelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peoples Front of Darunia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Peoples Front of Darunia is ranked 146,466th in the world and 988th in The United Federations for Most Cultured, scoring 62 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
