The Holy Empire of Drathtank is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Tankdeath with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.485 billion Drathtankians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deathtank. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Drathtankian economy, worth 201 trillion Rms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 136,011 Rms, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", the national security service are a bunch of crooks, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drathtank's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Drathtank is ranked 15,342nd in the world and 858th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 80.46 on the Human Development Index.
