The Empire of Comein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Damon I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.167 billion Comeinians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Comein City. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Comeinian economy, worth 883 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 212,006 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, Comeinians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comein's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Our Father and Lord.

Comein is ranked 6,632nd in the world and 30th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 92.06 Effective Tax Rate.
