Dundorf is widely accepted as Particracy's equivalent of Germany. It has strong communist and socialist tendencies and has in many parts of its history mimicked the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). However, like Germanic countries in real-life it has, at times, also been supportive of the far-right. For some parts of its history it has been under the rule of a monarch, but despite this, for the most part Dundorf has been a republic.
Dundorf is home of the Confessional Ameliorate Church of Dundorf, a Protestant church and the first Ameliorate Church in the world. Despite this, for long periods Dundorf has been under communist and socialist rule (as the Dundorfische Demokratische Republik, modelled on East Germany) which has resulted in a fiercely secular population with many people choosing not to be religious. Indeed, many Dundorfians choose to worship their leaders or the state instead of a religion.
Dundorf also had a colonial period between 1880 and 1928. Dundorf controlled a puppet government in Badara under the leadership of Sultan of Al'Badara. During this time Badara was known as the Badarenprotektorat. This accounts for the Badaran/Majatran minority in Dundorf.
Regarding the political scene, the country is usually polarised and is usually split between supporters of the far-left and supporters of the far-right. Dundorf has had three bloody civil wars between supporters of the left and supporters of the right.
Dundorf is a relatively homogeneous country but has a small Badaran/Majatran population as a result of immigration into Dundorf from when Badara was informally controlled by Dundorf during the brief Badarenprotektorat during the late-1800s. Dundorf is a popular destination for Ibutho-Hawu refugees and economic migrants which have been welcomed with open arms under left-wing governments. The Draddeg and Kilania are the ancient peoples of Artania and these communities have been a component of Dundorfian society for thousands of years. Some Duntrekkers also remain in the country, or have returned back to Artania from Saridan. A small number of Hobrazians migrated to Dundorf during its socialist (Dundorfische Demokratische Republik) period to study communism and socialism at its universities and have remained ever since.

Also, I have spoke to Moderation and there is the possibility that someone may object to the rise in the number of people declaring they follow "No Religion". I didn't realise when I copied and pasted it that someone proposed an increase from around 40% to 60%.

|Message||OOC: there was literally a genocide and mass fleeing of religious persons. There is RP justification for the mass increase.|
