The Principality of Draycora is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Nyyrikki Häkkinen with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.928 billion Elves 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 primarily concerned with Education, although Administration and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halsholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Elvish economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Icelandic Krónas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 178,286 Icelandic Krónas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,212,951 per year while the poor average 9,559, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Draycora's national animal is the Arctic Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Germanic Neopaganism.

Draycora is ranked 4,910th in the world and 10th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,218.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
