The Free Land of Tyranogorgon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Takeshi Kovacs with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.535 billion Tyranogorgonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyrian. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyranogorgonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,597 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 344,684 Gold Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tyranogorgon's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Tyranogorgon is ranked 519th in the world and 1st in New Western Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 77.58 Obesity Rate.
