Balrogus the dragon

Population18 million


The Empire of Balrogus the dragon is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Balrogus the dragonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The strong Balrogus the dragonian economy, worth 769 billion wings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 42,736 wings, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 328,629 per year while the poor average 1,488, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Balrogus the dragon's national animal is the dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Balrogus the dragon is ranked 28,613th in the world and 1,140th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.58 Workforce Participation Rate.
