The Kurosite People's Republic of Dra-pol is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Director Hotan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 44.787 billion Drapoel 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Da'Khiem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Drapoel economy, worth an astonishing 25,710 trillion units of manifest labours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 574,065 units of manifest labours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maritime signalling has become tedious since only the Drapoel flag can be displayed, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, and endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dra-pol's national animal is the Drapoel shoveler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kurosite Thought.

Dra-pol is ranked 272,362nd in the world and 13th in A Modern World for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
