The People's Republic of Davadatopia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dagano Kalau with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 4.601 billion Davadatopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novodoma. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Davadatopian economy, worth 679 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,623 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, the Davadatopian government claim that Davadatopians are oppressed out of love, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Davadatopia's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Davadatopia is ranked 187,289th in the world and 1,131st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.86 percentage of bribes refused.
