The Drakan Republic

Population1.727 billion

CapitalBoca Drakan


The Commonwealth of The Drakan Republic is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.727 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boca Drakan. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Drakan economy, worth 136 trillion Draks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,889 Draks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the entire entry for The Drakan Republic in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 158,119th in the world and 5,893rd in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 21 on the Rand Index.
