The Republic of Drusselstein is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Edmund Hawthorne with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.242 billion Drusselsteinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gimmelshtump. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Drusselsteinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,437 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,470 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.
War criminals are given full state funerals, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drusselstein's national animal is the ermine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
