The Republic of Dom Queesom is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 901 million Dom Queesomians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dom Queesomian economy, worth 74.2 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 82,402 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dom Queesom's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dom Queesom is ranked 54,236th in the world and 11th in One big Island for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
