The Infinite Wisdom of Druing is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nott Jussda-Pipplyu Ugriwif with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.377 billion Druingans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Local Park Pond. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Druingan economy, worth 306 trillion Tungsten Thought Tokens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 128,913 Tungsten Thought Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Druing's national animal is the Green-Backed Blue-Striped Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Druing is ranked 173,387th in the world and 137th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Black Market, with 65.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
