The Topian of Spode Humbled Minions is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sideways Biden with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.32 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, socially-minded government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong derp economy, worth a remarkable 1,582 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 169,796 derpfunds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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.
