Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Chaoist People's Republic of Dra-pol is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Director Hotan with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.995 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, 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 powerhouse Drapoel economy, worth an astonishing 16,864 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, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. 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 562,253 kuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A small country is wondering where their capital building's gold dome went, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 31st in the world and 1st in A Modern World for Largest Black Market, with 9,999 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
