The Fashionable Republic of Dervenland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sabrina Claudia Saint Laurent with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.882 billion Dervlenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville d'Orchidées. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dervlenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,238 trillion Nacelles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,945 Nacelles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and political clichés like "band-aid solutions" and "adrenaline shots to the economy" are headed for the dumpster. Crime is totally unknown. Dervenland's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dervenland is ranked 2,119th in the world and 32nd in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 19,608.21 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
