The Confederacy of Drakhan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lyrrad Drakhan with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed population of 5.626 billion Drakhans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Public Transport, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Drakhan economy, worth 293 trillion drakes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,129 drakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and weather reports simply advise Drakhans to 'look outside'. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Drakhan's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drakhan is ranked 100,493rd in the world and 3,507th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 522.64 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
