Drash Mannistan

Population563 million



The Holy Empire of Drash Mannistan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 563 million Drash Mannistanons 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 Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mandon. The average income tax rate is 58.0%.

The all-consuming Drash Mannistanish economy, worth 56.8 trillion drashmarks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,854 drashmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drash Mannistan's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Drash Mannistan is ranked 25,700th in the world and 1,041st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,581.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
