The Democratic Republic of Drakonaris is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 557 million Drakonarisians 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 Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Drakonarisian economy, worth 7.79 trillion Drakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 13,976 Drakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks, voting is compulsory, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drakonaris's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Drakonaris is ranked 235,381st in the world and 77th in Aelstun for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
