LeaderDrupatine VII


The Grand Duchy of Drutopia Insomnia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Drupatine VII with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.592 billion Drutopia Insomnians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Drutopia Insomnian economy, worth 289 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 182,111 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, lavish state dinners in The Vault are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. 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 116,949th in the world and 5,862nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,038.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
