The Dragon of Mushrenia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Richter von Zelmisburg with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, surprisingly youthful workforce, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.537 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.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zelmisburg. The average income tax rate is 4.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Mushrenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 144,908 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
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 a capable 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, and its national religion is Draconism.
