Dom Islana

Population6.128 billion



The United States of Dom Islana is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 6.128 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. The average income tax rate is 15.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dom Islanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 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 186,459 Bricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dom Islana's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dom Islana is ranked 9,434th in the world and 497th in Balder for Largest Black Market, with 117 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
