The Imperial Capital of Elegarth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dragongarth Elegarth with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.498 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 2,860 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,485 Golden Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and the government has returned all business to private ownership. 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 Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Draconism.

Elegarth is ranked 168,191st in the world and 7,082nd in the West Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 22.02 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
