The Community of Draikos is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Archon Hiraeth with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.655 billion Draikan are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albion. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Draik economy, worth 288 trillion hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,752 hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the 'sing-a-long with Archon Hiraeth' album is a popular souvenir, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Draikos's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is independently sourced.

Draikos is ranked 87,855th in the world and 311th in Forest for Largest Populations, with 2.65 billion Capita.
