The Dominion of Draconovox is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mammon with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.253 billion Dragon Denizens are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Origin of the Dragon Heart Domain. The average income tax rate is 22.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconovoxian economy, worth 183 trillion Dragon Hearts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 146,207 Dragon Hearts, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Draconovox's national animal is the Red Sky Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Draconovox is ranked 99,574th in the world and 65th in 21st Century Rome for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
