The Grand Duchy of Drutopia Insomnia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Drupatine VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3 billion Drutopia Insomnians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vault. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Drutopia Insomnian economy, worth 622 trillion Marks 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 an amazing 207,661 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drutopia Insomnia's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Drutopia Insomnia is ranked 224,656th in the world and 9,182nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 7.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
