The Dragon of Mushrenia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Richter von Zelmisburg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.402 billion Mushrenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zelmisburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mushrenia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Draconism, and its currency is the Gold Coin.

Mushrenia is ranked 89th in Europe and 10,530th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 28 on the Enoch Index.
