The Empire of Draghost is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dragoeror with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.017 billion Draghostians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid 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 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Draghostian economy, worth a remarkable 1,597 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 397,742 Golds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,181,062 per year while the poor average 36,937, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Dragonlordism.

Draghost is ranked 14,787th in the world and 2nd in Hiyamashu for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 79.07 Effective Tax Rate.
