The Allied States of Driodal is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 195 million Driodalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Driodalian economy, worth 15.6 trillion cebulions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,952 cebulions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Arbitration is mightier than the sword, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Driodal City for fear of causing a fuss. Crime is totally unknown. Driodal's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
