The Republic of Dereistic is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.204 billion Dereisticians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hockley. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dereistician economy, worth 260 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,139 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, smoking is banned in public areas, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime is totally unknown. Dereistic's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dereistic is ranked 6,230th in the world and 154th in the South Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 15 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
