The Imperial Elegarthan Province of Senator Elegarth is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Drangongarth Elegarth with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.695 billion Draconians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Senator Elegarthian economy, worth 902 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 117,310 Gold Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 371,359 per year while the poor average 28,273, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and children use fake IDs to purchase candy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Senator Elegarth's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Senator Elegarth is ranked 20,635th in the world and 289th in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 902 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
