The Drakan Republic

Population2.197 billion

CapitalBoca Drakan


The Commonwealth of The Drakan Republic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.197 billion Drakans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boca Drakan. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Drakan economy, worth 172 trillion Draks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,354 Draks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for The Drakan Republic in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Drakan Republic's national animal is the naga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Drakan Republic is ranked 27,672nd in the world and 822nd in the South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 22.91 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
