The New Halloween Republic of Davinhia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jack Skelington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.87 billion Davinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halloween City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Davinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,468 trillion Candies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 114,098 Candies, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the tenet of free speech is held dear, voting is voluntary, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Davinhia's national animal is the Jack o' Lantern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Davinhia is ranked 9,610th in the world and 277th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.73 on the Human Development Index.
