Southern Draco

Population201 million


The Republic of Southern Draco is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 201 million Southern Dracos have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 11.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Southern Dracoan economy, worth 13.9 trillion DRACS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 69,030 DRACS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and police nightsticks see use all day long. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Draco's national animal is the Hornet.

Southern Draco is ranked 60,714th in the world and 2,570th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 41.76 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
