The United States of Dom Islana is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.955 billion Dom Islanans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dom Islanan economy, worth 877 trillion Bricks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 177,117 Bricks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 647,496 per year while the poor average 34,366, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Shangri-La as a backdrop, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dom Islana's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dom Islana is ranked 38,422nd in the world and 1,939th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 68.92 on the Human Development Index.
