The Antediluvian Lost World of Saurian Nations is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Basileus Sauros Tyrannos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.703 billion Saurians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serpentine. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Saurian economy, worth 844 trillion sauroes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 228,172 sauroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, and large areas of Saurian Nations are not accessible by the public. 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 Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reptilian Nationalism.

Saurian Nations is ranked 549th in the world and 1st in Dinotopia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.44 Years.
