Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.761 billion Divitaens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Convenance. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,324 trillion Egals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 238,156 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divitaen's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Divitaen is ranked 16,167th in the world and 338th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 74.87 on the Human Development Index.
