The Sportsbook CEO of Davelands is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.265 billion Davelandsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davelands City. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Davelandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,460 trillion Sportsbucks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 142,268 Sportsbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, Dave has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime is totally unknown. Davelands's national animal is the Poodle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Davelands is ranked 62,334th in the world and 11th in The Sportsbook for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 427.89 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
