The Kingdom of Divitaen is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Crown Prince of Lacertus with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.782 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Religion & Spirituality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auxiliora. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Uranium Mining.

The government is cracking down on subversive groups, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Divitaen's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Mainline-Conservative Protestantism, and its currency is the Alma.

Divitaen is ranked 45th in Esquarium and 21,397th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 6 Whatever.
