The Democratic Republic of Drikonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gerard el Gran with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.348 billion Drikonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valador. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Drikonian economy, worth 71.7 trillion Catalóns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 53,207 Catalóns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Drikonia's national animal is the Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Drikonia is ranked 236,590th in the world and 4th in The Catalan Switzerland for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
