The Dragonic Dictatorship of Dragodon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ella the Eccentric with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.366 billion Dragodonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragodonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,965 trillion Dracos 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 a breathtaking 724,985 Dracos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, t-shirts displaying a photo of Ella the Eccentric performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dragodon's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pyrian.

Dragodon is ranked 13,271st in the world and 295th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 88.33 on the Human Development Index.
