The Republic of Derkburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President of Federal Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.623 billion Derkburgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Derkburgian economy, worth 186 trillion Derks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,154 Derks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Derkburg's national animal is the Alexander's owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Derkburg is ranked 48,292nd in the world and 1,540th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,281 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
