The Smokin Green Land of DiscGolfLand is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tournament Director with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.717 billion DiscGolfLandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Course. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient DiscGolfLandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,501 trillion Discs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 326,761 Discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and the government has declared that too much democracy gets in the way of sensible leadership. Crime is totally unknown. DiscGolfLand's national animal is the Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Disc Golf in Nature.

DiscGolfLand is ranked 29,621st in the world and 208th in the West Pacific for Largest Populations, with 10.7 billion Capita.
