The Großes Germanisches Reich of Drusselstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Joachim I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.951 billion Drusselsteinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vorbeck. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drusselsteinian economy, worth 308 trillion strong marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,392 strong marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drusselstein's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Drusselstein is ranked 59,826th in the world and 2,944th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 144,295.06 Standard Monetary Units.
