The Galactic Trade Conglomerate of PapaDracky is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King CREAM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.14 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 6,318 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 567,176 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,312,291 per year while the poor average 5,104, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. 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 258th in the world and 1st in Papastan for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 39,593.62 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
