OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of The Derrak Quadrant is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Demerzel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.264 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sartinaynian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The Derrak Quadrant is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. The Derrak Quadrant's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Quadrant.

The Derrak Quadrant is ranked 3rd in Asia and 1,411th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 13 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
