The United Republic of Datalass is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kasell with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.58 billion Datalassians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tangier. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Datalassian economy, worth a remarkable 1,432 trillion Radiss a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,690 Radiss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bicycle parking sheds sprout like mushrooms near rail stations after cars are banned, nine out of ten citizens of Datalass answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Datalass's national animal is the Drop Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Science.
