The Whisky Priest's of Drumtroddan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King William IX with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.185 billion 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 63%. 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.

Drumtroddan is ranked 19th in United Kingdom and 10,901st in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
