The Dominion of The Cinder Plains is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Markus Incineratus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.792 billion Degenerates 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Conflagration. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cinder Plainsian economy, worth 457 trillion Cosmic Fragments a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 255,306 Cosmic Fragments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, priests are being drafted by the church load, artists are pillars of society, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime is almost non-existent. The Cinder Plains's national animal is the Ember worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cinder Plains is ranked 134,137th in the world and 5,254th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
