The Galactic Trade Conglomerate of PapaDracky is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King CREAM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.971 billion Drackonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tower of Consumption. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient PapaDrackyian economy, worth a remarkable 6,932 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 579,119 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,424,179 per year while the poor average 5,211, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. PapaDracky's national animal is the Elcor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Profitism.

PapaDracky is ranked 23,264th in the world and 2nd in Papastan for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12,129.75 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
