The Empire of Drykoon is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The cynical population of 184 million Drykoonians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Drykoonian economy, worth 16.0 trillion drykoonian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 87,163 drykoonian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, the government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, refugees without a PhD are sent back to where they came from, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drykoon's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Drykoon is ranked 43,384th in the world and 1,594th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,523.74 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
