Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Old Derby is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.751 billion Old Derbyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Derby City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The thriving Old Derbyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,164 trillion Black Ices a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 150,302 Black Ices, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The police double as repo men, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Derby's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Derby is ranked 38,982nd in the world and 1,570th in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 86.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
