The Overlord's Dominion of Dolorem is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dark Overlord Sollace with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.203 billion Doloremi 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lortherium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, military spending recently hit a new high, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dolorem's national animal is the Minion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Heimdallr-Norse, and its currency is the Sollace.

Dolorem is ranked 4th in The Federal Union and 112,038th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 1 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
