The Retrograde Civilisation of Sigma Draconis VI is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kara with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.391 billion Draconians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground Complex. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Draconian economy, worth 76.4 trillion Bracelets a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,956 Bracelets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, and saying "don't do anything that Kara wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sigma Draconis VI's national animal is the Other, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sigma Draconis VI is ranked 134,368th in the world and 107th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 648.41 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
