== NationStates #1 - DragonDyce is Born == The Rogue Nation of DragonDyce is a fledgling, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up. The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 22%. A large private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Pizza Delivery and Trout Farming. Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. DragonDyce’s national animal is the Loafer, and its currency is the GP. == Visit the Nation == www.nationstates.net/dragondyce Likes and Subs are appreciated, and gets me to make vids faster =D == Songs == [Hoodie Allen — January Jones] [Mashup Germany - Imagine One Day-Matisyahu vs John Lennon vs Blink 182 vs Gentleman vs Bob Marley] [Of Monsters and Men — Little Talks(The Knocks Remix)] www.dragondyce.com Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.
