Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Divitaen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.186 billion Divitaens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,203 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 306,624 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has enacted freedom of information, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 353rd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 68 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
