The Northern Marshes of Drasnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Rhodar with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.695 billion Drasnians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education, International Aid, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boktor. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Drasnian economy, worth a remarkable 6,248 trillion half-crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 374,256 half-crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,597,278 per year while the poor average 18,867, a ratio of 137 to 1.

Disaster victims are viewed with disdain, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Drasnia's national animal is the fenling, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drasnia is ranked 48th in the world and 1st in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 1,061.59 Insults Per Minute.
