The Woke up and chose violence of Devi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.669 billion Deviants live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.
The very strong Devian economy, worth 421 trillion Chips a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 48,593 Chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 167,447 per year while the poor average 10,326, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.
Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and baby monitors have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Devi's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
