The Proletariat Empire of New Dudley is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor of the Proletariat Dylan Cook with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.8 billion pissed off coal miners are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dylodia. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong pissed off economy, worth 169 trillion Coal Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 93,919 Coal Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, one complaint of New Dudley's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried House Cat Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Dudley's national animal is the House Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of the Working Man's God.

New Dudley is ranked 26,474th in the world and 846th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,952.03 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
