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 national health service, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.396 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, 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 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,923 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 110,575 discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 100th in Gay and 31,843rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
