The Imperium of Pax Dracon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empress Hestia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.39 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Drakari economy, worth a remarkable 1,825 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 217,601 Drakons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, Empress Hestia panders to nontraditional families, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 42,799th in the world and 1,774th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 28.39 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
