The Grand Duchy of Derivian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Board of Derivia with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.09 billion Derivians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derivia. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Derivianian economy, worth 95.9 trillion Sapphires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 45,906 Sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Economic planning is exalted as a human art form, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Derivian Blood Tithe, and students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Derivian's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violet.

Derivian is ranked 177,958th in the world and 6th in Appalcadia for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.67 on the Rand Index.
