The Socialist Republic of New Drachma is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nightwatcher the Night fury with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.271 billion Drachmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Planet Vakuov. The average income tax rate is 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Drachman economy, worth 157 trillion Drachman Nikcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,147 Drachman Nikcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of New Drachma's radio stations, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, Nightwatcher the Night fury has just been declared ruler of New Drachma in an international press conference, and grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Drachma's national animal is the Celestial Night fury, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Drachma is ranked 96,177th in the world and 37th in Cape of Good Hope for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,814.95 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
