The Dragon Kingdoms of Pantala and Pyrrhia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 568 million dragons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thirnoe. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pantala and Pyrrhian economy, worth 46.1 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,163 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pantala and Pyrrhia's national animal is the Scavenger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pantala and Pyrrhia is ranked 150,699th in the world and 75th in Refugia for Highest Economic Output, with 46.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
