The Chocolate Rain of Discords is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Discord with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and feral children. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.504 billion Slaves are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaos Capital. The average income tax rate is 58.1%.
The strong Discordsian economy, worth 281 trillion Deaths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 80,375 Deaths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
Blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents, children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, the well-to-do in Underworld are never on time for important appointments, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Discords's national animal is the Draconequus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Insanity.
