The Like of Dependants is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leading Dependant Tyrone King with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.481 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 38.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dependant economy, worth 761 trillion Indies 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 169,952 Indies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 568,489 per year while the poor average 37,767, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, nine out of ten citizens of Dependants answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dependants's national animal is the Dependant Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dependants is ranked 126,611th in the world and 151st in New Western Empire for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 251.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
