The Burning Trash Fire of Lord Dominator is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.68 billion Deedas are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Testing Zone 1. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Deeda economy, worth a remarkable 3,362 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 437,890 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,874,980 per year while the poor average 6,971, a ratio of 555 to 1.

The native owl population is in permanent hibernation, Deedas must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lord Dominator's national animal is the Cockroach, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Entropism.

Lord Dominator is ranked 60,022nd in the world and 145th in Forest for Most Extreme, scoring 24.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
