The Discoverian Enclave of DiscArnate is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 11.683 billion DiscArnatics are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government prioritizes Spirituality, although Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient DiscArnatic economy, worth 371 trillion discs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,794 discs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. DiscArnate's national animal is the lanternfish, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

DiscArnate is ranked 150,904th in the world and 30th in Gay Equality for Most Cultured, scoring 62 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
