The Empire of Comein is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Damon I with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.658 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Enshrouded Citadel. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Comeinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,030 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 265,190 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Emperor Damon I is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, Comein's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, the police double as repo men, and trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 218,060th in the world and 344th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -505.23 on the Hayek Index.
