The Draconity of Gelgisith is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate, humorless population of 28.771 billion Gelgisith are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The very strong Gelgisith economy, worth a remarkable 3,936 trillion Floryns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Tourism and Book Publishing. 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 136,829 Floryns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has ended partisanship by ending elections, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, Gelgisith police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Gelgisith's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gelgisith is ranked 171,017th in the world and 15th in Dragon for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.23 Kickbacks Per Hour.
