Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.448 billion Divitaens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Convenance. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,167 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 291,027 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Supreme Revolutionary Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Divitaen's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Secularism.

Divitaen is ranked 1st in Esquarium and 490th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 3,813.578 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
