The Grand Dominion of Drakonian Imperium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Praetor Augustus Drake with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 25.485 billion Drakonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako Throne. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Drakonian Imperiumian economy, worth a remarkable 9,889 trillion Drakonian Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 388,049 Drakonian Sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,991,856 per year while the poor average 41,400, a ratio of 48.1 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, there's no such thing as bad publicity, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Drakonian Imperium's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Drakonian Imperium is ranked 23,746th in the world and 14th in Gholgoth for Most Developed, scoring 72.26 on the Human Development Index.
