Davids Island8

The Republic of Davids Island8 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, lack of airports, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.239 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Davids Island8ian economy, worth 192 trillion rupees a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 86,144 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Davids Island8's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Davids Island8 is ranked 161,475th in the world and 29th in Hendricksons for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
