The Militant Drugstore of Walgreens is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stefano Pessina with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, aversion to nipples, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.038 billion Walgreensians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walgreens City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Walgreensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,770 trillion Balance Rewards Points a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 195,865 Balance Rewards Points, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 778,420 per year while the poor average 33,239, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Walgreens's national animal is the CVS Shopper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Walgreens is ranked 2,920th in the world and 2nd in APSIA for Most Influential, scoring 23,093 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
