The Mage Minister of WA Affairs of Deropia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Miles Caldwell with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.707 billion Deropians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egremont. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Deropian economy, worth a remarkable 1,819 trillion Deropian Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 208,958 Deropian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, going on a diet invalidates your passport, netizens fiercely argue over who loves Grand Admiral Miles Caldwell more, and government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deropia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Deropia is ranked 3,997th in the world and 238th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 601.65 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
