The Federated States of Domanania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marcius Brenshal with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.935 billion Domananians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dowlwind. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Doman economy, worth a remarkable 4,267 trillion Draches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 285,706 Draches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and there are no more heroes any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Domanania's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Domanium.

Domanania is ranked 4,952nd in the world and 5th in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 11,532.18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
