The Irradiated Badlands of Drasnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Rhodar with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.637 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 primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, International Aid, and Administration are also considered important, 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 4,996 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 366,405 half-crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,101,071 per year while the poor average 30,786, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

Military funding has been stripped back, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Drasnia is ranked 765th in the world and 3rd in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 26,624.82 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
