The Commonwealth of Depolis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Riantinian with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.392 billion Depolisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Depolis. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Depolisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,476 trillion Dubloons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,068 Dubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Depolis's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, taxpayers receive expenditure reports from the Grand High Poobah of the Order of Violet, out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, and religion makes people horny. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Depolis's national animal is the Guilded Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Icthaticys Macsi.

Depolis is ranked 5,003rd in the world and 218th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 94 on the Human Development Index.
