The Principality of Discotheque is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 649 million Discotheqis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theqnoheim. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Discothequean economy, worth 56.4 trillion Disco Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 86,948 Disco Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, it's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps, and lottery winners spend most of their money on security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Discotheque's national animal is the Chupacabra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Discotheque is ranked 192,250th in the world and 1,620th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
