The Imperial Capital of Elegarth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dragongarth Elegarth with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.521 billion Draconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, 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 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 2,795 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 Book Publishing. 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 169,221 Golden Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gun ownership is compulsory, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers. 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 162,799th in the world and 6,728th in the West Pacific for Safest, scoring 6.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
