|Leader||President Ernst Hofer|
The Republic of Drusselstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Ernst Hofer with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.989 billion Drusselsteinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hofersburg. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Drusselsteinian economy, worth 814 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,275 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, many in Drusselstein are born in the purple, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, and bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drusselstein's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
