The Most Serene Republic of Drentusa is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 335 million Drentusans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drentusina. The average income tax rate is 8.6%.

The very strong Drentusan economy, worth 26.9 trillion florijns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 80,387 florijns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drentusa's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drentusa is ranked 84,394th in the world and 4,310th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 66 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
