The Draconic Lands of Arthymia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Dragon Grox VI with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 32.241 billion Arthymians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dormangwo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The very strong Arthymian economy, worth a remarkable 7,266 trillion Floryns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 225,385 Floryns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homophobia is off the menu, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime is totally unknown. Arthymia's national animal is the Wildcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Drakonism.

Arthymia is ranked 94,212th in the world and 7th in Dragon for Most Authoritarian, with 0.18 Stalins.
