The Like of Dependants is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Deppy with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.699 billion Dependants have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independance. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dependant economy, worth a remarkable 1,230 trillion Votes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 183,652 Votes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 552,610 per year while the poor average 47,613, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, children usually cry on their first day of school, a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dependants's national animal is the Senator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dependants is ranked 17,560th in the world and 17th in Ascenthia for Most Developed, scoring 83.88 on the Human Development Index.
