Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Draconics is a huge, genial nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 545 million Draconicsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Draconics City. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Draconicsian economy, worth 37.2 trillion Dracons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,262 Dracons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Draconics's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Draconics is ranked 141,945th in the world and 7,106th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.86 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
