The Republic of Dereistic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.516 billion Dereisticians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hockley. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dereistician economy, worth 645 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,045 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime is totally unknown. Dereistic's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dereistic is ranked 202,789th in the world and 8,212th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -15.56 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
