The Lethadone Clinic of Drecq is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Drecq with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.839 billion Drecqians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drecq. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drecqian economy, worth a remarkable 9,877 trillion SCUS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 397,672 SCUS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drecq's national animal is the Barbary Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cuthulhuism.

Drecq is ranked 5,658th in the world and 43rd in Europeia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 15,964.3 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
