The Pokémon Region of Duraludon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ash Ketchum with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.336 billion Pokčmon Fans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pallet Town. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pokefanian economy, worth 60.1 trillion Pokčuroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,969 Pokčuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, Ash Ketchum has just been declared ruler of Duraludon in an international press conference, and Arceinity has been named as Duraludon's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duraludon's national animal is the Pikachu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arceinity.

Duraludon is ranked 202,499th in the world and 107th in Thegye for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 15,244.74 Standard Monetary Units.
