The Adorable Nation of Davelands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.025 billion Davelandsians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davelands City. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Davelandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,102 trillion DaveDollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,333 DaveDollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime is totally unknown. Davelands's national animal is the Poodle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The One True Church Of Dave.

Davelands is ranked 5,032nd in the world and 130th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,039.28 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
