The Silver Fox of David Pearson is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Silver Fox with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 16.647 billion David Pearsonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spartanburg SC. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient David Pearsonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,806 trillion Calculated Paces 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 168,617 Calculated Paces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. David Pearson's national animal is the Horse Power, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

David Pearson is ranked 26,330th in the world and 51st in NationStates for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 985.19 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
