The Republic of Downtown City is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-working, devout population of 2.779 billion Downtown Cityians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Downtown Cityian economy, worth 180 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,125 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Downtown Cityians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Downtown City's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Downtown City is ranked 135,481st in the world and 4th in Downtown for Most Authoritarian, with 576.34 milliStalins.
