The Borderlands of Drakmah is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fearless leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.106 billion Drakmahans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prothroria. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drakmahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,408 trillion Ixians a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,804 Ixians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, protestors are soaking piles of Ixians in blood to make a point about government incomes, and the Drakmah Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drakmah's national animal is the Keshet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drakmah is ranked 12,344th in the world and 2nd in Clockwork for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.64 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
