The Industrial Empire of Derelldia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Stevor with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.493 billion Derelldians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trelblaze. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Derelldian economy, worth a remarkable 3,054 trillion Drells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 226,363 Drells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, the state conscripts sociopathic orphan girls to train as professional assassins, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Derelldia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Porridganity.

Derelldia is ranked 140,273rd in the world and 4th in The Insulam Confederacy for Most Pro-Market, scoring -65.56 on the Rand Index.
