The Drakan Republic

Population3.074 billion

CapitalBoca Drakan


The Commonwealth of The Drakan Republic is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.074 billion Drakans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boca Drakan. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Drakan economy, worth 237 trillion Draks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,154 Draks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for The Drakan Republic in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Drakan Republic's national animal is the naga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Drakan Republic is ranked 203,753rd in the world and 7,010th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 14,890.88 Standard Monetary Units.
