The Republic of Dereistic is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.619 billion Dereisticians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hockley. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dereistician economy, worth 329 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,675 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime is totally unknown. Dereistic's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dereistic is ranked 49,864th in the world and 2,019th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
