The Kingdom of Dragonspiral is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 184 million Dragonspiralites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Dragonspiralish economy, worth 5.19 trillion Draydens 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 Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 28,218 Draydens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, there are no more heroes any more, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dragonspiral's national animal is the Dragonite, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Dragonspiral is ranked 31,282nd in the world and 388th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,507.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
