The Rogue Nation of Dragonic Overlords is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Drago Darkwing with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.308 billion Dragonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Persona 4. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dragonic Overlordsian economy, worth an astonishing 12,918 trillion Dragonias a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 669,075 Dragonias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,372,500 per year while the poor average 136,108, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and slaving over a hot stove to cook the family dinner isn't metaphorical in Dragonic Overlords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dragonic Overlords's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dragonic Overlords is ranked 36,125th in the world and 69th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Authoritarian, with 1,594.78 milliStalins.
