Population5.001 billion



The Republic of Dereistic is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.001 billion Dereisticians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dereistician economy, worth 730 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 146,051 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate. Crime is totally unknown. Dereistic's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dereistic is ranked 191,593rd in the world and 6,959th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.91 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
