Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Greater Davidstan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King David XIX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.732 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 receive no funds. 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 1,910 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 283,848 GD Goldguldens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,049,222 per year while the poor average 12,552, a ratio of 163 to 1.

Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and barges of dissidents are being "reeducated through water therapy" in the South Lion Sea. 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 42,935th in the world and 11th in Coalition of Catholic States for Largest Governments, scoring 19.87 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
