The People's Commune of Dawsinian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Denth Kasten with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.998 billion Dawsinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town's End. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dawsinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,149 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Retail, Gambling, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 174,985 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Ducks and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Denth Kasten, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dawsinian's national animal is the Duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dawsinian is ranked 48,856th in the world and 132nd in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 67.08 on the Human Development Index.
