Lord Dominator

Population12.285 billion

CapitalTesting Zone 1


The Reaper of Lord Dominator is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.285 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, 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 6,332 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 515,480 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,299,956 per year while the poor average 12,139, a ratio of 354 to 1.

Classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, mostly women are seen and not heard, girls in elementary school classes gaze longingly at boys playing tag, and homesickness is thought to be a waterborne illness. 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 5,218th in the world and 1,054th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 15,521 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
