The Hidden Forest Kingdom of Subadent is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Dethrän Dove-Coppola with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.123 billion Subadentians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suburbadent. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Subadentian economy, worth 105 trillion Silver Doves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,760 Silver Doves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with King Dethrän Dove-Coppola, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, and a popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Subadent's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Loraxism.

Subadent is ranked 73,679th in the world and 27th in Conifer for Highest Economic Output, with 105 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
