The Kingdom of Dorland (adj.: Dorlese) is a nation of 150 million people in the continent of East Jaladra, ruled as a constitutional monarchy. As of the Year of Common Reckoning 387, the head of state is King Jason the Fifth, and the head of government is the prime minister, Hank Parson. The capital and largest city is Hallerton, at 10 million people. Other large cities include Bridgewater (8 million) and Port Eve (3 million). Until the Enarese War led to the loss of significant territory in the north to Palissan and the newly formed nation of Enaroland, the second largest city in Dorland was Mezeldad.

There aren't any plants or animals in my world that don't exist on earth, and the economy is fairly similar, so nothing stands out as highly unusual.

That said, in Dorland there are regional variations. Naturally, seafood is more common around the coasts. The farther inland you go, the heavier the spices get. In Sopresan they love their meat - they make it a billion different ways and every major city has the "right" way of cooking steaks or making sausage or whatever.

Potatoes and wheat are the main staple - corn and rice are easily available but a little more "exotic" for the average Dorlese dinner. A lot of people have a beer with dinner - nothing too strong.

One somewhat popular candy is the New Year Coin, which is dark chocolate sandwiched around any of a variety of fillings (including salty caramel and black licorice.)

Senaria has for centuries celebrated "Monster Night," in which celebrants disguise themselves as either monsters (and Senarian mythology has a lot of monsters) or the first humans in the world, who fought against them.

This tradition eventually spread throughout much of the world. Because Monster Night was held about a month after the fall equinox, in many places it got mixed up with harvest festivals.

In Dorland, typically people of all ages will put on costumes (usually of the scary variety) and march through the streets at night, making noise and generally having fun. The next day they will have an elaborate feast a la Thanksgiving.

Darknet Cafes - just a standard internet cafe that has private rooms you can rent for a few hours, if you know what to say. They'll reformat them completely after you're done without asking what you're doing, they don't want to know, bad for business. Also it establishes that computers are stuck around the 90's, but that's just a bonus.
