The Republic of Democratie is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Douglas MacArthur with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.115 billion Democratieans 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Democratiean economy, worth 473 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,101 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratie's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Americanism.

Democratie is ranked 115,871st in the world and 4,701st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 866.07 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
