The Grand Duchy of The Derrak Quadrant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Demerzel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.247 billion The Derrak Quadrantians 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 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 8,042 trillion Quadrants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 295,152 Quadrants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 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 and its national religion is Catholicism.
