The Republic of Durtoss is a huge, safe nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 657 million Durtossians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durtoss City. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Durtossian economy, worth 35.1 trillion Durtossian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,375 Durtossian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, there's no representation without taxation, and solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown. Durtoss's national animal is the Durtossian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Durtoss is ranked 27,641st in the world and 1,025th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,347.11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
