The Kingdom of Dracadia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Martin-Andrew with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.2 billion Dracadians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dracadian economy, worth 329 trillion gildins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 149,628 gildins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,092,809 per year while the poor average 6,352, a ratio of 172 to 1.

Fireworks and other big bangs are forbidden during the newest public holiday, the new Grand Inquisitor of Righteous Scientific Inquiry has ordered a surprising amount of hemlock, spies caught in Dracadia are never heard from again, and the crispy fried liver of a chicken is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dracadia's national animal is the chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Yellowism.

Dracadia is ranked 16,584th in the world and 43rd in Thalassia for Most Developed, scoring 84.77 on the Human Development Index.
