The Empire of The Empire of Drassliona is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 711 million Drasslionans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drassliona City. The average income tax rate is 46.3%.

The very strong Drasslionan economy, worth 54.0 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,952 Gold Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and superfoods are often seen as supervillains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of Drassliona's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Empire of Drassliona is ranked 3,821st in the world and 576th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 59 valid endorsements.
