The Dictatorship of DristanTheBest2 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 346 million DristanTheBest2ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The DristanTheBest2ian economy, worth 17.6 trillion Drews a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,820 Drews, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, atheists refusing to attend church are heavily fined by the government, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DristanTheBest2's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

DristanTheBest2 is ranked 34,623rd in the world and 1,326th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,357.64 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
