The Imperium of Pax Dracon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Hestia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.809 billion Drakari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drakari economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 trillion Drakons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,944 Drakons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Pax Dracon's radio stations, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown. Pax Dracon's national animal is the Great Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Temple of Enlightenment.

Pax Dracon is ranked 11,359th in the world and 345th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 81.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
