The Republic of Drakkar Unitary Absolutist is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Heer Koning with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.729 billion Drakkarians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drakkary economy, worth 869 trillion New Sagaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,208 New Sagaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, increasing numbers of children in Drakkar Unitary Absolutist have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Drakkar Unitary Absolutist City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drakkar Unitary Absolutist's national animal is the Yellow-throated marten, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Free Will.

Drakkar Unitary Absolutist is ranked 142,590th in the world and 5,472nd in Balder for Most Primitive, scoring -285.26 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
