Paper Dragons

The Empire of Paper Dragons is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.178 billion Paper Dragonsians 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 Education, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.4%.

The powerhouse Paper Dragonsian economy, worth 68.1 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 57,834 rupees, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paper Dragons's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Paper Dragons is ranked 200,829th in the world and 37th in Warzone Asia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 439.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
