The Dragon Empire of Elegarth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Great Wyrm Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, enslaved workforce, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.399 billion Draconians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconic economy, worth a remarkable 4,766 trillion Gold Coins 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, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. 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 amazing 233,665 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, and the nation's best artists are considered pretty easy to beat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elegarth's national animal is the Punny Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bahamuth Faith.

Elegarth is ranked 43,393rd in the world and 910th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 73.36 Insults Per Minute.
