The Archaic Revival of Death By Astonishment is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Altered Statesman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.498 billion Consciousness Explorers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The DMT Tunnel. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Psychedelic economy, worth 116 trillion heroic doses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,016 heroic doses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', DBA-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally. Crime is well under control. Death By Astonishment's national animal is the stoned ape, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psychedelic Shamanism.

Death By Astonishment is ranked 79,742nd in the world and 4,181st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,058.05 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
