The Workers' Syndicates of Droiden is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Forstepremier Felix Juul with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.326 billion Droidenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Althior. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Droidenian economy, worth 727 trillion Crobanats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 168,113 Crobanats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Droiden. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Droiden's national animal is the Northern Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Juul-Noregaard Thought.

Droiden is ranked 11,297th in the world and 9th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Developed, scoring 89.43 on the Human Development Index.
