The Republic Of Drakes

The Republic of The Republic Of Drakes is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 94 million Republic Of Drakesians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.0%.

The strong Republic Of Drakesian economy, worth 4.41 trillion Scaleses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 46,952 Scaleses, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic Of Drakes's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Republic Of Drakes is ranked 110,636th in the world and 27th in Nostromo for Highest Drug Use, scoring 41.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
