Drabantia (Drabantian: Drabantsko) is a country located in central Uletha. It is bordered by UL15b to the west, Beldonia to the north, UL100 to the east, Banuvia to the south, and UL15h and Mallyore to the southwest across the Egalian Lake. Drabantia covers the area of 64,766 km2 with mostly temperate continental climate influenced by the lake. As of 2017, Drabantia had almost 8 million inhabitants. Drabantia is a unitary parliamentary republic and a nation state. Its capital and largest city is Odrava with over 800,000 residents, followed by Lipice with 244,000, Krále Hora with 206,000 and Třesno with 158,000. Drabantia is divided into 9 kraje and consists of four historical territories: Drabantian Egalia, Luhava, Boravia and Banuj. The current president is Radovan Bašta and Jan Michalek the Prime Minister.

The present-day Drabantian state can be traced back to the Duchy of Drania, which was founded in the late 9th century around Krále Hora. The duchy maximized its size and importance in 1116, when following the victorious 12-year-long Dranian-Egalian War it expanded its territory to the west. In 1118, the duchy became a federation of semi-independent margraviates and counties, knows as the Union of the Drabantian Crown Lands. The union lasted until 1379, when Drabantia got conquered by the Egalian Empire and subsequently went through a brutal conversion to Egalian culture. Metoděj Kos, a pastor, started an armed protest movement in the 1450s, however after several lost battles the movement was defeated and its most prominent members killed.

In 1617 after the Wars of the Emperor's Crown, Drabantia became semi-independent and gained full independence in 1721. In the 19th century, Drabantia saw major industrial growth. The country became a republic in 1915 after king Václav Karel III died and went through a dramatic political crisis in the 1940s caused by income inequality and inflation, resulting in 20 years of authoritarian left-wing government. Nowadays, it is a modern developed country with high living standards and high income economy.
