The Empire of Drykoon is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.169 billion Drykoonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 24.0%.

The Drykoonian economy, worth 193 trillion drykoonian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 89,094 drykoonian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drykoon's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Drykoon is ranked 71,273rd in the world and 3,040th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 340.15 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
