The Republic of Differson is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 622 million Differsonians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiivica. The average income tax rate is 28.9%.
The strong Differsonian economy, worth 41.6 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,924 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", Differson has designated Kiivica as its capital city, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime is almost non-existent. Differson's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
