The Nomadic Peoples of The Drifter Princess is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 404 million Vagabonds live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The First Convoy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Drifter Princessian economy, worth 44.1 trillion Stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 109,207 Stones, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and citizens have a tough time telling the difference between jeans and genes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Drifter Princess's national animal is the Fell Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Drifter Princess is ranked 144,134th in the world and 129th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -8.94 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
