The Topian of Spode Humbled Minions is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, feral children, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.969 billion derp 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong derp economy, worth a remarkable 1,260 trillion derpfunds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 158,138 derpfunds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', and third world countries are rich in "I Love Cairo" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spode Humbled Minions's national animal is the sharkderp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Spode Humbled Minions is ranked 4,097th in the world and 7th in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Influential, scoring 13,847 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
