The Shaper City-State of Drypeak is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.67 billion citizens 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drypeak. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Shaper economy, worth 53.7 trillion gold coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 32,139 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drypeak's national animal is the servant mind, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Drypeak is ranked 213,552nd in the world and 1,101st in Primitiveness for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 11,120.31 Standard Monetary Units.
