The Empire of Draghost is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dragoeror with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.929 billion Draghostians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Draghostian economy, worth 567 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 294,307 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 945,081 per year while the poor average 69,469, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, the government has become increasingly militant, and the Draghostian Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Draghost's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dragonlordism.

Draghost is ranked 137,125th in the world and 24th in Hiyamashu for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -100.43 on the Hayek Index.
