The Northern Republic of Deerfenland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by *Elections Underway* with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.175 billion Deerfenese 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makugege. The average income tax rate is 46.8%.

The powerhouse Deerfenese economy, worth 548 trillion Arrowheads a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 105,975 Arrowheads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Deerfenese Liberator", an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Deerfenland's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Deerfenland is ranked 29,205th in the world and 1,389th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 53,383.23 Standard Monetary Units.
