Friends of Dorothy

Population28.949 billion

The Divine Cabaret of Friends of Dorothy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 28.949 billion Dorotheans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Cartso. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Dorothean economy, worth a remarkable 2,830 trillion sequins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 97,760 sequins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Friends of Dorothy's national animal is the male, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Friends of Dorothy is ranked 216,559th in the world and 37th in Nudist Dreamland for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
