The Republic of Divare Ye Divar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 1.32 billion Divare Ye Divarians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Divare Ye Divarian economy, worth 36.1 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,329 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cars are banned, euthanasia is illegal, organ donation is compulsory, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divare Ye Divar's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
