The Angry Southern Federation of Dernel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Santino Tentatellhi with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.156 billion Dernellians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illaria. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Dernelian economy, worth 991 trillion Dernellian Blunts a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 314,303 Dernellian Blunts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Dernellian Blunt battlesuits, foreign governments regularly accuse the Dernelian military of war crimes, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dernel's national animal is the Armadillo Girdled Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
