The Empire of Dragonar is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Robert Wolf with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.012 billion Dragonarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonia. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragonarian economy, worth 726 trillion Drakeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 181,178 Drakeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, foreign musicians that Robert Wolf dislikes are turned away at the border, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dragonar's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Draconism.

Dragonar is ranked 3,905th in the world and 221st in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.76 Years.
