The Utopian Commonwealth of Discoveria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Nathan Bohr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 26.461 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 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Discoverian economy, worth a remarkable 3,098 trillion discs a year, is highly 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 117,110 discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. 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 165,164th in the world and 7th in LGBT University for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
