The Secret Tree House Club of Decent Humans is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Person Nearly Everyone Voted For with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.471 billion Decent Humans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubble Bobble. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Decent Humanian economy, worth 82.8 trillion Shiny Shapeses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,319 Shiny Shapeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, voting is voluntary, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Decent Humans's national animal is the harlequin shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Chillwhateverism.

Decent Humans is ranked 184,401st in the world and 1,454th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
