The Drakonian Territory of Drako Luna is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Praetor Augustus Drake with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.051 billion Drako Lunans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herschel Crater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The all-consuming Drako Lunan economy, worth 620 trillion Drakonian Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 102,593 Drakonian Sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 447,618 per year while the poor average 14,858, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and most foreigners can't name the leader of Drako Luna. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drako Luna's national animal is the Lunar Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drako Luna is ranked 110,632nd in the world and 4th in Moon for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 963.14 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
