The Republic of Durfia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.432 billion Durfians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Durfian economy, worth 359 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,705 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, it's always rabbit season, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and the nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Durfia's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durfia is ranked 8,931st in the world and 208th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.21 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
