The Republic of Downtown City is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 3.618 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 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Downtown Cityian economy, worth 235 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,155 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, father-son fishing trips have been banned, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and it is said that a Downtown Cityian woman's work is never done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 45,319th in the world and 1st in Downtown for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,341.97 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
