The Republic of Glitter Drops is a huge, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning unicorn population. The hard-working, democratic population of 713 million Glittery Drops enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 9.6%.

The strong Glitter Dropsian economy, worth 35.8 trillion metric tons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 50,275 metric tons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Glitter Drops's national animal is the unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Glitter Drops is ranked 157,882nd in the world and 122nd in Shinka for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
