The Empire of Davistian Empire is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor George I with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.85 billion Davistians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Davistian economy, worth a remarkable 1,166 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 240,563 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, and the Davistian Empire Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown. Davistian Empire's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Davistian Empire is ranked 164,832nd in the world and 11th in Selene for Most Average, scoring 26.76 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
