The Dominion of Draconovox is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Unified Overlords with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.809 billion Dragon Denizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nameless Heart. The average income tax rate is 34.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconovoxian economy, worth 333 trillion Dragon Hearts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,589 Dragon Hearts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime is almost non-existent. Draconovox's national animal is the Red Sky Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Draconovox is ranked 12,637th in the world and 29th in 21st Century Rome for Most Developed, scoring 88.03 on the Human Development Index.
