Formation of Drakoria Edit
The Confederacy of Drakoria was formed on the Alabama-Georgia border on August 15, 2008. A brutal civil war had caused the area to fall into chaos. The ruler of Drakoria brought order to the territory and formed a nation out of it. Most of Drakoria is located on the Georgia side of the border.
Buildup to War Edit
After the nation left the War of Superiority, where several nations tried to gain the most power, the government raised taxes to pay repairs. This annoyed citizens, but it was supposedly temporary. However, the government extended the high taxes for their own benefits, and the citizens were angered.
Attempts to Act Edit
Hanns Drake, a politician of this nation, attempted to remove taxes and lower government regulations on the states. He failed, and left office after an assassination attempt.
A year later, income tax reached 97%. The people were outraged, and called for reform. A protest was held in the city of New Macon, and troops opened fire. The New Macon Massacre caused a widespread revolt. Hanns Drake became the leader of this movement, and the Drakorian Revolution began.
The first major conflict of the Drakorian Revolution was the Battle of Dragas, a small town in eastern Georgia that held over 6,000 Nationalist soldiers. An army of 2,000 Drakorian Revolutionaries surrounded the city and began to bombard it. After three days of artillery bombardment and aircraft strikes, a strike force of 100 Drakorians with 10 tanks entered the city. After they had secured the southern perimeter, 500 Drakorian soldiers entered the city. As the exhausted Nationalists were pushed back, more and more surrendered. Finally, the next day, the town officially surrendered. Over 2,500 Nationalist troops were captured.
A few days later, a small group of Drakorian Revolutionaries within the city of New Macon captured the mayor. The small group, christened the Fathers of Liberty, numbered only 25 at the time. However, when Nationalist soldiers moved in to retake the mayor and the capitol building, the small band fought, killing 85 and losing three. The day after, over 10,000 citizens came to the capitol to help the Fathers of Liberty. Armed with stolen weapons and illegal weapons, from M16s and G36s to shotguns and .22 pistols, they took positions in the capitol and around it. For ten days they held out, and finally, during a push by Nationalist soldiers that threatened to break the defenses, a Drakorian Revolutionary army arrived, led by Hanns Drake. The remaining 9,000 volunteers joined them, and over 20,000 Nationalists surrendered.
Hanns used this city as his base of operations, and as the war raged on, his workers built cruise missiles for use on the Nationalists. Soon, cruise missiles were being launched nearly every half hour. A month later, when the Nationalist forces were scattered from cruise missiles and aircraft strikes, Drake ordered the Drakorian ground troops to attack. Numbering 75,000, they marched north, capturing the city of Natograd, then splitting into three sections of 25,000. One went straight north to the capital, and the others branched to the side. Meanwhile, a large number of volunteers and militia marched from the north. Two days later, a military of 50,000 volunteers and 75,000 soldiers attacked New Atlanta.
After four months of fighting at New Atlanta, over 30,000 Drakorians had died, and over 50,000 Nationalists. As Drakorian soldiers approached the Presidential House, the Nationalist President decided to take the Drakorians down with him. He launched a nuclear missile, aimed straight at New Atlanta. As the nuclear launch was detected, the Drakorians and Nationalists lost all want of fighting and scrambled to leave the city. Only 500 Drakorians and 100 Nationalists escaped. The Nationalists surrendered to the Drakorians shortly after. Half of the survivors later died of cancer. The Old New Atlanta was made into a monument after the war, and the city rebuilt elsewhere.
The nation of Drakoria was finally founded and recognized as an independent nation on August 15, 2008. Thousands died in the war. The Confederacy of Drakoria quickly found its feet in the world, and began to expand and gain power.
Drakoria began to claim and purchase new lands almost immediately. Only a few hours after formation, Drakoria claimed a small Georgia town named LaGrange. A few days later, they had taken over the city of Macon, and were nearly to the city of Old Atlanta. The goal was to reach the Atlantic Ocean. By September 10, 2008, Drakoria controlled all of Georgia, most of South Carolina and Alabama, part of Florida, and half of Tennessee and Mississippi.

Domestic Positions Edit
Social Welfare Edit
President Drake, seeing the lifetime social welfare as a drain on the economy, set a new policy up. Social welfare was to be cut off after three months. This was an adequate time to find a job, whether it be at a fast food restaurant or a law firm. This was implemented in order to prevent the unemployed from living off of the welfare and not searching for a job.
Crime and Punishments Edit
President Drake was a firm believer in the death penalty. He believed that if you took the life of another, you should lose your life. After this was implemented and enforced, crime dropped significantly.
Drake also had rapists 'cut off' from repeating their crimes by making castration a form of punishment. Mny would-be rapists were deterred by this, and the crime dropped significantly.
The death penalty was enforced against murderers, pedophiles, terrorists, and many other violent criminals.
Domestic Terror Edit
President Drake defined this as any attack against the citizens of Drakoria. Harsh penalties were instilled for anyone who terrorized the nation after the capitol building was bombed by a fringe group known as the Sons of the Reaper. Several Senators were killed in the bombing, and the entire Sons of the Reaper group was arrested, tried, and were hanged.
The Drakorian Police are the ones that hold Drakoria together. They are divided into multiple departments, and given G36 Assault Rifles to combat crime. This all-pervasive force was given high funding, and was able to track down nearly every criminal.
President Drake abolished the inheritance tax immediately after founding Drakoria. He saw this tax as immoral. The taxes he left standing were the sales tax, military tax, police tax, and other essential taxes. He set the income tax at 10%, and placed a cap of 20% in peace and 28% at war.
Foreign Affairs Edit
Financial Assistance Edit
Drakoria placed its citizens first. They only sent out financial aid if they had a high surplus and the need was good.
Military Aid Edit
Drakoria limits the nations to which it sends military aid to trade partners and allies. They will not participate in wars that do not involve them or an ally.
Drakoria strictly limits when they can send aid. If they are in a deficit, they will not send financial aid. If they are at war, they will not send aid unless they have extra from funding the military. Other restrictions apply.
The Confederacy of Drakoria is, as stated, a confederacy. Each state has its own rule, but the federal government is able to remove corrupt officials and overrule the decisions of these corrupt ones. Each government position is electable, but if an official has at least 70% of the population in favor of him or her, their position is unelectable until their favor drops.
There are three branches of the Drakorian government: Presidential, judicial, and Congress.
This branch consists of the president, vice president, and close advisors. The president is the final say for all major happenings suggested by Congress.
The judicial branch handles punishment and trials for all criminals.
Congress suggests laws and actions for the government. All laws require a majority favor to be passed on to the president. There are 247 seats in Congress.
Political Parties Edit
There are several Drakorian political parties.
Socialists are in favor of slightly stricter government control and an equality of wages. Socialists hold fourteen seats on the Drakorian Congress.
Communists are in favor of strict government control of the nation, equal wages, and government ownership of all business. Many citizens disapprove of this party, so it only holds two seats on the Drakorian Congress.
Equalists are in favor of equal power between the state and federal government. They believe that states should be able to tax their own people and decide on sending aid to other states, but the federal can enlist military from this and utilize most facilities. They are also very strong on racial equality. They hold eighty-three Drakorian Congress seats.
Patriots are generally fanatical Drakorians who love their nation. They are against all discrimination against Drakoria, and as a result tend to start wars if the nation is called 'foolish.' They favor harsh penalties to those who desecrate the flag and to terrorists. They are classified as a radical group. They hold twenty-two seats on the Drakorian Congress.
Drakorian Libertarians are against full government control and favor the rights of the states. They oppose infringing these rights, but know it is sometimes essential for the federal government to take over, such as in times of war. They hold one hundred seven seats on the Drakorian Congress.
Revolutionists are radical people who support extreme ideas, such as full government control of the economy and nation. They hold twelve seats on the Drakorian Congress.
Independent politicians have varying views, generally different from each party. Independents hold six seats on Drakorian Congress.
Anarchists support the destruction of government and the ability of people to live without laws. Only one Anarchist is on the Congress, and he won by a 51-49% election.
