The Antediluvian Lost World of Saurian Nations is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Basileus Sauros Tyrannos with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 5.607 billion Saurians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serpentine. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Saurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,584 trillion sauroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 282,539 sauroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saurian Nations's national animal is the Prehistoric Reptile, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reptilian Nationalism.

Saurian Nations is ranked 979th in the world and 1st in Dinotopia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.3 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
