The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 21.564 billion Discoverians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Veritas. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 2,388 trillion discs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,766 discs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, Vice-President Nathan Bohr's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Discoveria's national animal is the lanternfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Discoveria is ranked 17,112th in the world and 101st in Gay for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 52.5 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
