The Republic of Drongonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Bill English with a fair hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.96 billion Drongonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christchurch. The average income tax rate is 27.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Drongonian economy, worth 718 trillion Drongonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 242,885 Drongonian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime is totally unknown. Drongonia's national animal is the Drongo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Drongonia is ranked 10,191st in the world and 2nd in Anglospheric Empire for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.23 Years.
