8-bit Dragons

The Dominion of 8-bit Dragons is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 826 million 8-bit Dragonsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 12.9%.

The frighteningly efficient 8-bit Dragonsian economy, worth 84.7 trillion gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 102,501 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. 8-bit Dragons's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

8-bit Dragons is ranked 80,800th in the world and 3,491st in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
