The Free Republic of Datavia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elected Administrator with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 20.537 billion Datavians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Datavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion bits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,015 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military funding has been stripped back, the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, the children of Datavia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Datavia's national animal is the mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Datavia is ranked 19,262nd in the world and 1,068th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 83.48 on the Human Development Index.
