The Whisky Priest's of Drumtroddan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William IX with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.959 billion Drumtroddanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cruggleton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. Drumtroddan's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Thaler.
