The Constitutional Monarchy of Draconics is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Notboss Dragonking with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, devout population of 2.741 billion Draconicsians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Draconics City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconicsian economy, worth 330 trillion Dracons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,695 Dracons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Judicial torture is outsourced overseas, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service. 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, and its national religion is Jehovah's Witnesses.

Draconics is ranked 152,010th in the world and 7,609th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
