The PHD in dueling doctor of Dr Crowler is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Sheppard with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.021 billion Dr Crowlerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duel academy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dr Crowlerian economy, worth 769 trillion Star chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,221 Star chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 442,468 per year while the poor average 42,095, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dr Crowler's national animal is the Ancient gear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Duel monsters.

Dr Crowler is ranked 59,603rd in the world and 2nd in The enforcers for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,566.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
