The Topian of SPode humbleD Minions is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Cubic with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.89 billion derp are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 2.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse derp economy, worth a remarkable 1,963 trillion derpfunds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,261 derpfunds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake, and defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. SPode humbleD Minions's national animal is the sharkderp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Rakeoian Paganism.

SPode humbleD Minions is ranked 22,700th in the world and 24th in The League for Most Developed, scoring 80.51 on the Human Development Index.
