The Confederation of Dresderstan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Edward with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.015 billion Dresderstanians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aventador. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dresderstanian economy, worth 505 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,837 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dresderstan's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dresderstan is ranked 19,299th in the world and 2nd in Zentari for Highest Poor Incomes, with 74,640.07 Standard Monetary Units.
