Sorry to derail, but this left me with the image of "heroic" dragon-slayers managing to murder this poor dragon for her hoard . . . only to find a whole lot of credit slips payable strictly to her. Dark humor at its worst.

Right up there with the dragon horde containing poorly made macaroni artwork by the dragon's child. It was treasure to him...

If a credit union would work, which it should the smallest one I can find is Glacial Lakes Education Employees Federal Credit Union (Watertown, S.D., $1 million).

It would probably be easier to buy a small bank, banking licence and all and go from there... if you wanted a bank card, the next obvious step would be to buy into one of the international networks.

It depends on the country, on mine and as long as you have sufficient funds the process is relatively simple.

Dragon lady is specified as having followers. A dozen of them can be the board and owners of record.

As far as the OPs question, it would be essentially trivial given the described starting point.
