The Dictatorship of Dorkman is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 682 million Dorkmanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rommels Stadt. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dorkmanian economy, worth 94.2 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,088 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, Formula One cars in Dorkman boast 56 miles per gallon, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorkman's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Dorkman is ranked 23,487th in the world and 6th in Teutonic Empire for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.9 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
