The Republic of Daert is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tomas Lovekost with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.956 billion Daertians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shanghai. The average income tax rate is 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Daertian economy, worth 103 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 35,171 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, and glamping Daertians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daert's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Empty Gods.

Daert is ranked 123,612th in the world and 179th in Oneid for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 50 Whatever.
