The Grand Duchy of Dragonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Jeymian Drachenberg III with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 16.361 billion Dragonians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weyrcliff. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dragonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,028 trillion Galleons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 368,466 Galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dragonians seem to be catching more chills, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Dragonian politicians, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high. Crime is totally unknown. Dragonia's national animal is the Dragonhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Druidicism.

Dragonia is ranked 24,310th in the world and 433rd in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 216.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
