The Smokin Green Land of DiscGolfLand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tournament Director with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.562 billion DiscGolfLandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Course. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient DiscGolfLandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Discs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 257,755 Discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. Crime is totally unknown. DiscGolfLand's national animal is the Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Disc Golf in Nature.

DiscGolfLand is ranked 161,963rd in the world and 6,277th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -749.31 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
