The Galactic Trade Conglomerate of PapaDracky is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King CREAM with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.221 billion Drackonians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. 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 4,870 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 528,163 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,690,376 per year while the poor average 8,175, a ratio of 573 to 1.

Census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in PapaDracky after the ban on emigration was lifted, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, it is often said that only King CREAM could bring down Dàguó, and the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris. 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 151,247th in the world and 4th in Papastan for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.24 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
