AnimalGreat Tit

The Republic of Datland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President R Reinhardt with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.69 billion Datlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Datlandic economy, worth 614 trillion Datcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 166,465 Datcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, and it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children. Crime is almost non-existent. Datland's national animal is the Great Tit, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Datland is ranked 12,756th in the world and 92nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 20.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
