The Portal Master of Red Dusk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Shadow with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 15.859 billion Duskians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Dawn. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The powerhouse Duskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,070 trillion Glimmers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,533 Glimmers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courtrooms can be a little sketchy, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, claims of miracles are met with calls to eradicate religion as superstitious nonsense, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Dusk's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Duskism.

Red Dusk is ranked 223,277th in the world and 13th in Aenaroth for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.9 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
