The Community of Draikos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archon Hiraeth with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.464 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 265 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 107,638 hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, one of the most popular models in Draikos has a scarred face and one working eye, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. 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 186,224th in the world and 249th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
