The Republic of Duskwi is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 568 million Duskwians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duskover. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Duskwian economy, worth 32.8 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 57,762 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, birth rates have hit an all-time low, anti-government web sites are springing up, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime is totally unknown. Duskwi's national animal is the axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Duskwi is ranked 197,648th in the world and 6,221st in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.63 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
