The Great Northern Realm of Droiden is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Dan II f Knytlinga-Aalborg with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.435 billion Droidenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aalborg. The average income tax rate is 58.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Droidenian economy, worth 383 trillion Droidenian Kroners 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. 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 157,380 Droidenian Kroners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Aalborg, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Droiden's national animal is the Droidenian Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Northern Sea Orthodoxy.

Droiden is ranked 173,365th in the world and 77th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Pro-Market, scoring -68.44 on the Rand Index.
