The Downtrodden People of Dregs of the Earth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Steve Morse with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.278 billion Dregs of the Earthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skid Row. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Dregs of the Earthian economy, worth 296 trillion Road Expenses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,580 Road Expenses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Sports club owners are having a moneyball, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dregs of the Earth's national animal is the Kitten, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vedulism.
