Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Greater Davidstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King David XIX with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.542 billion Davitians 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davipolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Davitian economy, worth a remarkable 1,854 trillion GD Goldguldens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 283,500 GD Goldguldens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,890,318 per year while the poor average 16,141, a ratio of 117 to 1.

The letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and people who have lived their entire lives in Greater Davidstan are shocked to discover that they are not citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Greater Davidstan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Greater Davidstan is ranked 149,389th in the world and 5th in Fontem Aeterni for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -31.14 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
