The Dominion of The Cinder Plains is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Markus Incineratus with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.921 billion Degenerates 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, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Conflagration. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cinder Plainsian economy, worth 503 trillion Cosmic Fragments a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 261,856 Cosmic Fragments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. Crime is totally unknown. The Cinder Plains's national animal is the Ember worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cinder Plains is ranked 10,920th in the world and 554th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 85.27 on the Human Development Index.
