Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Socialist Republic of Divitaen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Revolutionary Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.378 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, liberal, 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Divitaen economy, worth a remarkable 2,732 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 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 an amazing 240,189 Egals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', birth rates have hit an all-time low, and almost all of Divitaen's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. 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 and its national religion is Secularism.

Divitaen is ranked 177,200th in the world and 998th in The Communist Bloc for Most Devout, with 3.23 Prayers Per Hour.
