The Province of Greater Drenthe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Donson with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.485 billion Great Drents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Assen. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Greater Drenthean economy, worth 564 trillion Guldens 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 an impressive 125,832 Guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Drenthe's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Esoteric Order of Dagon.

Greater Drenthe is ranked 43,356th in the world and 98th in Lands End for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 95.22 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
