The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rutherford with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.383 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Veritas. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Discoveria is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and refugees from other nations are flocking to Discoveria's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Discoveria's national animal is the lanternfish, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the disc.
