The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.924 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 medium-sized, 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 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,979 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 110,451 discs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, prudishness is on the way out, government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 247th in Gay and 139,122nd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
