The Holy Empire of Greater Dragunovia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Joseph IV August with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.273 billion Dragunovians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragunovia. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragunovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,168 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,257 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the nation has nearly as many history museums as Dragunovians, the last thing Dragunovian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Dragunovia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Greater Dragunovia is ranked 25,479th in the world and 326th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.94 Bank.
