The Oppressed Peoples of Doomen is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 453 million Doomenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 6.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Doomenian economy, worth 30.3 trillion ends a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,996 ends, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, private law firms are unheard of, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Doomen, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Doomen's national animal is the people, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Doomen is ranked 99,752nd in the world and 3,548th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 50.31 on the Human Development Index.
