The Imperial Capital of Elegarth is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dragongarth Elegarth with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.922 billion Draconians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 3,153 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,370 Golden Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, modern readers say a story is worthless without hyperlinked footnotes and editable wiki format, and new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elegarth's national animal is the Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Draconism.

Elegarth is ranked 72,243rd in the world and 3,039th in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
