The Word of the Dragon

Population575 million

CurrencyGold Piece

The Fiefdom of The Word of the Dragon is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 575 million Word of the Dragonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The very strong Word of the Dragonian economy, worth 37.1 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 64,492 Gold Pieces, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 240,497 per year while the poor average 12,128, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Leader's office. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Word of the Dragon's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Word of the Dragon is ranked 241,730th in the world and 119th in Lair of the Dragon for Most Authoritarian, with 359.06 milliStalins.
