The Republic of Miss Defied is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by TerriLou with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.8 billion Miss Defiedians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Miss Defiedian economy, worth 839 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 65,552 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, every workday begins with group therapy, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Miss Defied's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Miss Defied is ranked 57,433rd in the world and 3,410th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 56.39 on the Human Development Index.
