The Oppressed Peoples of A Catastrophic Megadrought is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by A Catastrophic Megadrought with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.833 billion Catastrophic Megadroughtians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Scorched Earth. The average income tax rate is 5.3%.

The powerhouse Catastrophic Megadroughtian economy, worth 148 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 81,272 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Catastrophic Megadroughtian language, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, "The Daily Sacrifice" is a routine segment of morning news shows, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. A Catastrophic Megadrought's national animal is the dead fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is A Catastrophic Megadrought.

A Catastrophic Megadrought is ranked 172,126th in the world and 8th in Dead Sea for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
