The Federated Holy States of Domanania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Marcius Brenshal with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.006 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Doman economy, worth a remarkable 3,080 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 a large, well-organized, 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 236,817 Draches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, all technology must be personally blessed by religious officials before purchase, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. 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 5,243rd in the world and 24th in The Western Isles for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.57 Years.
