The Octoparlimus of Dersobalia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Timao Kul'ulailo with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.682 billion Sobalis 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 Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bjesport. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sobalian economy, worth 160 trillion siuls a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 95,206 siuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dersobalia's national animal is the catfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dersobalia is ranked 217,534th in the world and 10,815th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.3 crimes per hour.
