The Grand Kingdom of Democratu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Leonidas Thornton with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.058 billion Democratuans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Democratu City. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Democratuan economy, worth 221 trillion Denariis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,415 Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, almost all products in Democratu are hand-crafted due to strict employment laws, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratu's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Royal Cult.

Democratu is ranked 40,263rd in the world and 2,358th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
