The Democratic Republic of Drus Gorlis is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Rosario Zamudio with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 881 million Drus Gorlisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byron Center. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Drus Gorlisian economy, worth 75.4 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,611 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, it's never "just a game" with Drus Gorlisian sports fans, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drus Gorlis's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Drus Gorlis is ranked 129,562nd in the world and 180th in Thaecia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.8 Kickbacks Per Hour.
