The Queendom of Divertian is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 222 million Divertianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Divertianian economy, worth 7.21 trillion Inurrias 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 Book Publishing, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. 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 32,476 Inurrias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Divertian's radio stations, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, homophobia is off the menu, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divertian's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Divertian is ranked 220,869th in the world and 238th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.16 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
