The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.773 billion Divitaens enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Convenance. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,614 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, 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 298,045 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, euthanasia is legal, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 Secularism.
