The Unified Democratic States of Inven is a massive, safe nation, ruled by William Churchill with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, avant-garde cinema, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.126 billion Invenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Creativ. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Invenian economy, worth 525 trillion Invenian Universal Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,247 Invenian Universal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Inven's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Invenism.

Inven is ranked 204,336th in the world and 57th in Lily for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.49 Crimes Per Hour.
