The King of Cool of Drecq is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Coco with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.089 billion Drecqians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coconia. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales industries.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drecq's national animal is the Barbary Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cuthulhuism, and its currency is the SCU.

Drecq is ranked 13th in Europeia and 1,766th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 21 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
