The Grand Duchy of The Derrak Quadrant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Demerzel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.153 billion The Derrak Quadrantians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sartinaynian. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient The Derrak Quadrantian economy, worth a remarkable 7,764 trillion Quadrants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 296,892 Quadrants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and students who refuse to pray are expelled from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Derrak Quadrant's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.
