The Dominion of Drekhi is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Markus Lodvar with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.537 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 1,781 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 3,457th in the world and 2nd in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 600.01 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
