The Soaring Dragonate of Skydragonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader Arkacia with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.78 billion Skydragonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buranda. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Skydragonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,605 trillion talons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 92,980 talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, one does not simply walk into the tundra, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skydragonia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is gaiaism.

Skydragonia is ranked 146,443rd in the world and 8th in Dragon Lair for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 850.21 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
