The Commonwealth of Detlan Republic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Micheal Laled with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.275 billion Detlans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Detla. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Detlan Republician economy, worth 733 trillion Detlan dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,397 Detlan dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Detlan Republic's national animal is the Viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
