The Commonwealth of The Drakan Republic is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.178 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, well-organized 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 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Drakan economy, worth 170 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 78,354 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.
