The Free Land of Greater Diskorxia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 238 million Diskorxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Greater Diskorxian economy, worth 6.18 trillion xianders 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 Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 25,982 xianders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Greater Diskorxian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Diskorxia's national animal is the draconic fuselage, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greater Diskorxia is ranked 205,590th in the world and 5,771st in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 6.18 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
