The Commonwealth of Reptile land is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 384 million Reptile landians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Reptile landian economy, worth 17.6 trillion Scaleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,724 Scaleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reptile land's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Reptile land is ranked 56,934th in the world and 1,654th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 26.95 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
