Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.073 billion Discoverians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized 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 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,881 trillion discs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,183 discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Discoveria Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, Vice-President Nathan Bohr's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 34th in Gay and 10,116th in the world for Best Weather, with 56 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
