The Dominion of Drekhi is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Markus Lodvar with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.56 billion Drekhi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forstark. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Drekhi economy, worth a remarkable 1,785 trillion Talos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 208,640 Talos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

State dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drekhi's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Ascension.

Drekhi is ranked 6,291st in the world and 5th in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Most Cultured, scoring 134 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
