The Peoples Front of Darunia

Population153 million


The Dictatorship of The Peoples Front of Darunia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 153 million Darunians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Darunian economy, worth 7.18 trillion Pelts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,951 Pelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, and the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peoples Front of Darunia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Peoples Front of Darunia is ranked 105,283rd in the world and 694th in The United Federations for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 207.58 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
