Terran Draconia

Population487 million


AnimalFlying Lizard

The Republic of Terran Draconia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 487 million Terran Draconians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sorieth. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Terran Draconian economy, worth 49.7 trillion Arums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,964 Arums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Terran Draconia's national animal is the Flying Lizard, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Terran Draconia is ranked 156,126th in the world and 6,630th in the South Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
