The Protected species of Dreshand is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Overseer with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.575 billion Dreshandian Transhumanists enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shanaxanti. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreshandian economy, worth 229 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,946 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dreshand's national animal is the Giant Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Maxwellism.

Dreshand is ranked 10,118th in the world and 244th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
