The Dictatorship of Drihidnua is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Duce Kaspar Herkvatuar with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.708 billion Drihidnuans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hutol. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Drihidnuan economy, worth 108 trillion gulders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 40,206 gulders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, citizens who don't follow Christianity are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, skyscrapers get built in just days, and the government spends millions of gulders every year prosecuting spammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drihidnua's national animal is the parrots, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Drihidnua is ranked 204,766th in the world and 255th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 52,215 Standard Monetary Units.
