The Grand Monarchy of United Draconia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Robert Buckingham with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.293 billion Draconian's 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laconia. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient United Draconian economy, worth 829 trillion Emeralds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,718 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, Draconian's submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Draconia's national animal is the White Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zen.

United Draconia is ranked 223,088th in the world and 10,032nd in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.9 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
