The Overlord's Dominion of Dolorem is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dark Overlord Sollace with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.033 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 78%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, there are no minimum wage laws, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, and agricultural science is the most competitive subject at Dolorem's universities. 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 2nd in The Federal Union and 1,425th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
