The Dominion of The Captain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 44.99 billion Captainians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Captain City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Captainian economy, worth an astonishing 29,594 trillion TDU 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 Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 657,793 TDU Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,161,833 per year while the poor average 5,910, a ratio of 1,042 to 1.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Captain's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Captain is ranked 18th in the world and 1st in Wysteria for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 73,712.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
