The Peasant Wizard of Deropia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Miles Caldwell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.391 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, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egremont. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Deropian economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 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 209,276 Deropian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, the running costs of homeless shelters are so high that it would be cheaper to buy houses for the homeless, and Deropian doors require a Ph.D. to open. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 15,484th in the world and 846th in The North Pacific for Highest Food Quality, scoring 132.5 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
