The People's Republic of Drava is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The cynical population of 17.926 billion Dravans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Dravan economy, worth 145 trillion rubles 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 a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 8,114 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, political activists are routinely executed, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drava's national animal is the bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Drava is ranked 130,926th in the world and 4,166th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
