Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Chaoist People's Republic of Dra-pol is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Director Hotan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.516 billion Drapoel are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Da'Khiem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Drapoel economy, worth an astonishing 17,084 trillion kuroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 559,863 kuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, and the country has unplugged its internet connection to prevent subversive content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dra-pol's national animal is the Drapoel shoveler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kurosite Thought.

Dra-pol is ranked 19,925th in the world and 4th in A Modern World for Most Extreme, scoring 29.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
