The Angry Southern Federation of Dernel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Santino Tentatellhi with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.951 billion Dernellians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illaria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dernelian economy, worth 446 trillion Dernellian Blunts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,694 Dernellian Blunts, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the new national anthem passes the Turing Test. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dernel's national animal is the Armadillo Girdled Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Dernel is ranked 5,611th in the world and 165th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 11,516 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
