The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.664 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 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,796 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 107,778 discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, artists are pillars of society, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. 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.
