The Haunted Ruin of Rainy Swamphaven is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by some group of old lizards with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.745 billion Swamp 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Arcology of Bridges. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconic economy, worth 389 trillion thundruses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 141,941 thundruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, 200 mph car chases are a frequent sight on the otherwise empty motorways, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown. Rainy Swamphaven's national animal is the jack russel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is the ocean in stone.

Rainy Swamphaven is ranked 72,033rd in the world and 5th in Rain Falling In a Digital Void for Most Politically Free, scoring 68.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
