Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.235 billion Divitaens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,548 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, broadly 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 276,002 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, grazing lands are filled with cattle wearing odd-looking anti-pollution devices, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 193,028th in the world and 2,191st in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with -1055 Meters Of Sunlight.
