The Chaoist People's Republic of Dra-pol is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Hotan with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.613 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Education are also considered important. 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 17,956 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 568,019 kuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 1,641st in the world and 5th in A Modern World for Smartest Citizens, with 168.9 Quips Per Hour.
