The Pirate Triumvirate of Dridia is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 2.124 billion Dridians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dridian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Doubloons 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. 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 15,140 Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dridia's national animal is the Skeleton, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dridia is ranked 215,374th in the world and 87th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
