The Republic of The Island of Diamonds is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 828 million Island of Diamondsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 25.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Island of Diamondsian economy, worth 35.2 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 42,556 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, citizens all over The Island of Diamonds squeal in delight at the return of pockets, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Island of Diamonds's national animal is the dove.
