The Most Serene Republic of Dervasia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 195 million Dervasians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 27.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Dervasian economy, worth 9.64 trillion Matheuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,414 Matheuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Dervasians, and Dervasia's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dervasia's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dervasia is ranked 99,880th in the world and 15th in Iveagh for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 52.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
