The Armed Republic of Drastein is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Judge Dredd with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.21 billion Drasteinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delmas. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Drasteinian economy, worth 258 trillion Dras a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,375 Dras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drastein's national animal is the Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drastein is ranked 123,762nd in the world and 31st in Taijitu for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 55.88 Workforce Participation Rate.
