The Autocratic Festivity of Dawcreek is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sashenka Claus with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.188 billion Dawcreekians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krylonov. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dawcreekian economy, worth 982 trillion Shenkas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 308,230 Shenkas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,031,031 per year while the poor average 68,495, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Shenkas to support "struggling" industries, recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and the cycle of extinction and rebirth is never ending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dawcreek's national animal is the Great Dawcreekian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christmas.

Dawcreek is ranked 2,241st in the world and 6th in Wintreath for Most Corrupt Governments, with 251.03 Kickbacks Per Hour.
