The Kingdom of Devsauce is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 542 million Devsauceans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brianna. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Devsaucean economy, worth 64.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,227 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Concussed falconball players cannot remember their lineup position, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and prison officers are bribed not to take bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Devsauce's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Devsauce is ranked 61,222nd in the world and 2,592nd in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 41.4 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
