The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.828 billion Divitaens are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Convenance. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,617 trillion Egals 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 241,737 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Workers' complaints never reach central planning, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divitaen's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Secularism.
