LeaderErnst Hofstadter


The Free Republic of Drusselstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ernst Hofstadter with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.4 billion Drusselsteinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augsburg. The average income tax rate is 76.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Drusselsteinian economy, worth 674 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 153,220 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, all the playground's a stage for Drusselsteinian schoolchildren, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drusselstein's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Drusselstein is ranked 68,880th in the world and 3,591st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,631.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
