Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 19.588 billion Discoverians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Veritas. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 2,185 trillion discs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,554 discs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Discoveria's national animal is the lanternfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Discoveria is ranked 120,581st in the world and 147th in Gay for Most Conservative, scoring 33.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
