The Grand United Kingdom of -Dragonland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Firebreath with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.008 billion Dragons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragon City. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dragon economy, worth 21.8 trillion chili peppers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,858 chili peppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. -Dragonland's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dragon Agnosticism.

-Dragonland is ranked 226,077th in the world and 2nd in The Dragons Bless for Highest Poor Incomes, with 10,737.34 Standard Monetary Units.
