The Drunken Tyranny of Drunkerland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Egglin Gaylord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.991 billion Bums 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bum City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Drunkerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,237 trillion Bird Droppings 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, 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 amazing 310,009 Bird Droppings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,019,982 per year while the poor average 70,604, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Drunkerland's national animal is the Drunk Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Communism.

Drunkerland is ranked 3,964th in the world and 24th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Rudest Citizens, with 160.33 Insults Per Minute.
