The Commonwealth of Reptile land is a very large, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 168 million Reptile landians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Reptile landian economy, worth 7.54 trillion Scaleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,888 Scaleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reptile land's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Reptile land is ranked 32,855th in the world and 1,026th in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 31.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
