The Draconic Fury of Si-topia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Si with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.128 billion 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonspire. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Si-topian economy, worth a remarkable 1,303 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,385 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and cheating spouses are required to undergo job training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Si-topia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Si-topia is ranked 7,589th in the world and 239th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.42 on the Human Development Index.
