Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Drekka is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by unknown with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 12.116 billion Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Annik. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Drekkan economy, worth a remarkable 2,436 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 201,065 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and a small country is wondering where their capital building's gold dome went. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drekka's national animal is the Velvet ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drekka is ranked 40,916th in the world and 1,326th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 54.8 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
