The Disunited Stratocracy of Lizard Tribes is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Chief Ohtlauixcha'el with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.582 billion Lizardmen 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, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xalgan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The large but inefficient Reptilian economy, worth 299 trillion stones a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,581 stones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 157,219 per year while the poor average 14,395, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, atheists on vacation find Serpent Cult's scriptures make useful doorstops, voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Lizard Tribes, and family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lizard Tribes's national animal is the Dinosaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Serpent Cult.

Lizard Tribes is ranked 271,325th in the world and 157th in Caer Sidi for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -7.07 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
