The Grand Duchy of Dragonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duke Jeymian Drachenberg III with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 13.469 billion Dragonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weyrcliff. The average income tax rate is 11.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,153 trillion Galleons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 308,364 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Dragonia's radio stations, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, you're only as old as you feel, and political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown. Dragonia's national animal is the Dragonhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Druidicism.

Dragonia is ranked 43,923rd in the world and 1,813th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 91.48 on the Hayek Index.
