Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Drekka is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by unknown with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 12.502 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, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important. 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 2,523 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 201,835 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, foreign governments regularly accuse the Drekkan military of war crimes, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. 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 108,389th in the world and 3,254th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 12.27 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
