Regional Influence: Unproven
The Commonwealth of Derthal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexi Igoranovich with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.657 billion Derthalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mt Joonis. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Derthalian economy, worth 280 trillion Neras 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 105,743 Neras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the government loves seeing the little people fight, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Derthal's national animal is the Peacock Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Radical Atheism.
