The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.428 billion Divitaens 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, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Convenance. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,442 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 259,065 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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.
