The Dictatorship of Duby is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Adalard Romano with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.027 billion Dubyians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romano. The average income tax rate is 30.0%.

The powerhouse Dubyian economy, worth 208 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,876 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duby's national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duby is ranked 27,959th in the world and 74th in Conch Kingdom for Most Authoritarian, with 2,065.82 milliStalins.
