The Haunted Ruin of Rainy Swamphaven is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by some group of old lizards with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.049 billion Swamp Dragons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Arcology of Bridges. The average income tax rate is 67.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconic economy, worth 425 trillion thundruses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 139,458 thundruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons. Crime is totally unknown. Rainy Swamphaven's national animal is the jack russel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the ocean in stone.

Rainy Swamphaven is ranked 15,897th in the world and 3rd in Rain Falling In a Digital Void for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 19,613.25 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
