The Imperial State of Derika is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aeneaus Asar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.609 billion Derikans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buur City. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Derikan economy, worth 803 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 common. Average income is an impressive 174,255 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Small Council has more than a little influence, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. 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 11,140th in the world and 2nd in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Largest Black Market, with 66.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
