Devils Advocate

Population28.548 billion

CapitalCity of Reason


The To Hell and Back of Devils Advocate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 28.548 billion Devils Advocateans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Reason. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Devils Advocatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,651 trillion logics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,859 logics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, and the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Devils Advocate's national animal is the debate, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
