The Holy Empire of Drambenburg is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.588 billion Drambenburgians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lerbin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The powerhouse Drambenburgian economy, worth 246 trillion Drambs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,404 Drambs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 298,448 per year while the poor average 23,393, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Golden Eagle sacrifices. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Drambenburg's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Drambenburg is ranked 73,928th in the world and 99th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.1 Bank.
