The Rucksack of Drug is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 9.731 billion Drugians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Drugian economy, worth 228 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,514 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A major religion has been named as Drug's national religion, Leader has just been declared ruler of Drug in an international press conference, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drug's national animal is the Lorax, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Drug is ranked 88,166th in the world and 2,898th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Crime Rates, with 5.58 Crimes Per Hour.
