The Domain of Dictatorship of Earth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Diviner Riphe Aretung with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.431 billion Earthians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mt Erebus City. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Earthian economy, worth a remarkable 1,663 trillion Scraps 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, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. 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 375,375 Scraps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, money grows on trees, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dictatorship of Earth's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dictatorship of Earth is ranked 44,698th in the world and 2,255th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 132.27 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
