The Imperial State of Derika is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aeneaus Asar with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.729 billion Derikans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buur City. The average income tax rate is 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Derikan economy, worth 642 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,373 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, bicyclists are banned from major roads, a video of Aeneaus Asar wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Derika's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Derika is ranked 73,126th in the world and 2nd in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Most Authoritarian, with 845.94 milliStalins.
