Draconis is led by President Helios, who is formerly a citizen of Uvin. As such when Draconis declared itself, Uvin was the first nation to recognize Draconis. Draconis is run by Representitives, elected every four years, by the people. These Representitives live in Shinigami for the extent of their terms. there are no limit in the number of terms a Representitive may serve, however, if a Representitive is removed from office, for any reason, he/she is not allowed to run again.
The first and current president of Draconis is President Jacob Helios III, former citizen of Uvin. While still in Uvin, he started Helios Aeronautical Inc.(HA), the main producer of all aircraft and aircraft parts within the country. When Uvin decided to make a colonies on the newly discovered Draconis Islands, Helios resigned his post in HA to lead a group to the islands and set up a colony. After several years, Uvin entered the Great War, and due to enormous destruction in Uvin, it severed connection with the colony of Draconis, and the Draconis Empire was born. The citizens of the new nation elected Helios as the leader, who then set up the same form of government of Uvin.

Months into Uvins' lifespan it was decided that Uvin would make a colony to spread it's power and influence, thus the colony that would be known as Draconis was born. The Great War however began draining resources from Uvin, it was no longer able to send supplies and aid to the colony. As Uvin began getting hit harder and harder, more and more civilians began fleeing most left for other countries but others for the colony. Half way through the war Uvin officially cut contact with the colony and told the colony it would need to fend for itself. The colony(now the nation of Draconis) decided to elect the CEO of Helios Aeronautical, Inc. as its leader. He kept the Uvin system of government, and began building up Draconis in order to aid his former homeland and become a nation to be reckoned with.

Helios spoke to the attackers several times, but his pleas fell on deaf ears. Seeing that war was inevitable, Helios sent the Draconian Army on the offensive to deter the attackers once and for all. The war raged on for several months until in one final engagement, a joint offensive between the Army, Navy, an Air Force destroyed the last of the enemies ships, and the enemies armies was stuck on Soukyoku Island. The enemy armies surrendered and were captured and held until peace treaties were signed.
Draconis entered war with 9 nations, and not only sent all 9 into anarchy, it also ZIed all of them. However, the costs were grevious: 17,103 Soldiers, and 1 Airman paid the ultimate price for their country. As the FAN War drew to a close, Draconians built a memorial to honor those who died.
