The Protected species of Dreshand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The High Overseer with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.429 billion Dreshandian Transhumanists enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shanaxanti. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dreshandian economy, worth 389 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,231 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dreshand's national animal is the Giant Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Maxwellism.

Dreshand is ranked 6,817th in the world and 398th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 90.03 on the Human Development Index.
