The Drakan Republic

Population1.721 billion

CapitalBoca Drakan


The Commonwealth of The Drakan Republic is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.721 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boca Drakan. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Drakan economy, worth 135 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 78,889 Draks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the entire entry for The Drakan Republic in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 158,200th in the world and 5,978th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 21 on the Rand Index.
