The Republic of Davids Island8 is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, soft-spoken computers, and lack of airports. The cynical population of 1.064 billion Davids Island8ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.3%.

The strong Davids Island8ian economy, worth 74.1 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,619 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and open-heart surgery is taught in seminaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Davids Island8's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Davids Island8 is ranked 128,441st in the world and 3,097th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
