Grinning Dragon

Population17.416 billion

CapitalRideo Draconigena


The United States of Grinning Dragon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.416 billion Grinning Dragonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rideo Draconigena. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The thriving Grinning Dragonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,415 trillion Fires a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 81,298 Fires, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 235,449 per year while the poor average 22,245, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, surveillance cameras are banned, the government is avowedly atheist, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Grinning Dragon's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Grinning Dragon is ranked 18,638th in the world and 819th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,173.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
