The Shadow of Draconovox is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Каган Райджийн with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.897 billion Drakonov enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drakojin. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drakonov economy, worth a remarkable 1,530 trillion Dragon Hearts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 259,516 Dragon Hearts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Antacids top everyone's Maxxmas list, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Draconovox's national animal is the Crusading Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Dragon Mythology.

Draconovox is ranked 9,886th in the world and 3rd in Coldonia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 417,014 Standard Monetary Units.
