The Commonwealth of Derthal is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alexi Igoranovich with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.644 billion Derthalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mt Joonis. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Derthalian economy, worth 166 trillion Neras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 101,069 Neras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One of the most popular models in Derthal has a scarred face and one working eye, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Derthal's national animal is the Peacock Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Radical Atheism.

Derthal is ranked 30,850th in the world and 920th in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 92 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
