The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vice-President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 22.628 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 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 2,574 trillion discs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,786 discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, many aides in Vice-President Nathan Bohr's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. 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 165,983rd in the world and 220th in Gay for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
