The Stratocratic Empire of Fortis Draco Islands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Generalissimo Konstantin Ruskov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.939 billion Draconians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarokhov. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Draconian economy, worth 928 trillion Dracs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 188,087 Dracs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortis Draco Islands's national animal is the Martial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Fortis Draco Islands is ranked 5,975th in the world and 1st in Union of Shoddy Subaverage Republics for Most Secular, with 97.64 Atheism Rate.
