The Northern Marshes of Drasnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Rhodar with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.478 billion Drasnians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Education, Administration, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boktor. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Drasnian economy, worth a remarkable 6,180 trillion half-crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 375,056 half-crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,581,405 per year while the poor average 19,405, a ratio of 133 to 1.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with half-crowns, and the space program has been reduced to King Rhodar's nephew playing with a cardboard space shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Drasnia's national animal is the fenling, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Drasnia is ranked 72nd in the world and 2nd in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 99.05 Obesity Rate.
