Lord Dominator

Population8.21 billion

CapitalTesting Zone 1


The Burning Trash Fire of Lord Dominator is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.21 billion Deedas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Testing Zone 1. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Deeda economy, worth a remarkable 3,632 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 442,460 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,129,450 per year while the poor average 4,169, a ratio of 990 to 1.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lord Dominator's national animal is the Cockroach, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Entropism.

Lord Dominator is ranked 897th in the world and 3rd in Forest for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 14,968.45 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
