The Imperial Capital of Elegarth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dragongarth Elegarth with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.838 billion Draconians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 32.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 2,634 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. 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 166,355 Golden Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visual acuity is worsening amongst teenagers, the world still seems flat to some people in space, most pop videos prominently feature the Elegarthian flag, and powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 100,752nd in the world and 3,938th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 48.57 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
