The Dragon Empire of Elegarth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Great Wyrm Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.168 billion Draconians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconic economy, worth a remarkable 3,409 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 177,886 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elegarth's national animal is the Punny Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bahamuth Faith.

Elegarth is ranked 68,949th in the world and 2,511th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.82 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
