The Holy Empire of The Divine Mandate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.854 billion Divines 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gestaltus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The Divine Mandatean economy, worth 576 trillion Dukats 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 58,492 Dukats, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Portuguese Man O' War, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Divine Mandate's national animal is the Portuguese Man O' War, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unitas.

The Divine Mandate is ranked 46,974th in the world and 6th in Unknown for Most Beautiful Environments, with 676.99 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
