The Grand Duchy of Dragons Power is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.847 billion Dragons Powerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonus. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The very strong Dragons Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 6,199 trillion squirrels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,674 squirrels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Dragons Powerians any less frightened, and ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dragons Power's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sacrificial Bladder.

Dragons Power is ranked 228,591st in the world and 8,377th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 0.21 Quips Per Hour.
