The Imperial Empire of Drifterica is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Shino Kyuwa with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.88 billion Driftericans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honiahaka. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drifterican economy, worth 637 trillion Blossom Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,202 Blossom Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Drifterican Space Agency, military spending is on the increase, the word 'foreigner' is considered a highly vulgar expletive, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drifterica's national animal is the Peregine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Drifterica is ranked 9,292nd in the world and 1st in Gaeilgedomhan for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,370.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
