The Haha you just got rickrolled of Drew Durrnil is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rick Astley with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.12 billion Durrnilians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rickroll City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Durrnilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,300 trillion Rickrolls a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 315,577 Rickrolls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,190,057 per year while the poor average 15,909, a ratio of 137 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', all animals are equal but some are more equal than others, and citizens buy season tickets on a 20-year payment plan. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Drew Durrnil's national animal is the Rick Astley, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rickrollism.

Drew Durrnil is ranked 1,581st in the world and 47th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 137.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
