The Kingdom of David Bowie Stan is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 970 million David Bowie Stanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lazarus. The average income tax rate is 62.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient David Bowie Stanian economy, worth 40.1 trillion plantains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,375 plantains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Weather reports simply advise David Bowie Stanians to 'look outside', bicyclists are banned from major roads, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. David Bowie Stan's national animal is the Heteropoda davidbowie.

David Bowie Stan is ranked 139,719th in the world and 5th in The Seventh Reich for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.64 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
