The Kingdom of Dratava is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by king Emyr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, flagrant waste-dumping, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.694 billion Dratavans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terlak. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dratavan economy, worth 920 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 341,512 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dratava's national animal is the Dratavan eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dratava is ranked 205,901st in the world and 7,051st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 297.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
