The People's Republic of Davadatopia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 227 million Davadatopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Davadatopian economy, worth 12.1 trillion rubles 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 53,189 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Davadatopia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Davadatopia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Davadatopia is ranked 21,989th in the world and 345th in 10000 Islands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 89.86 Years.
