The Empire of Dragonar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Robert Wolf with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.487 billion Dragonarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonia. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragonarian economy, worth 396 trillion Drakeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 159,457 Drakeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, the government funds large training centres to turn Dragons into functioning members of society, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dragonar's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dragonar is ranked 10,103rd in the world and 501st in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 109 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
