Kingdom of Derita

LeaderEmperor Kekoa
FaithDeritain Pantheonism


The Celestial Empire of Kingdom of Derita is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Kekoa with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 21.397 billion Deritans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaosa. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deritain economy, worth a remarkable 2,980 trillion Dérrals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,287 Dérrals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and the Deritain delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Derita's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deritain Pantheonism.

Kingdom of Derita is ranked 202,661st in the world and 14th in Meillur for Safest, scoring 38.85 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
