The Kurosite People's Republic of Dra-pol is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Hotan with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 38.5 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 21,966 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 570,555 units of manifest labours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People make a career out of medical voyeurism, appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Drapoel military, and the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine. 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 62nd in the world and 1st in A Modern World for Highest Economic Output, with 21,966 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
