The Republic of Dome of the Rock is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 3.326 billion Dome of the Rockians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Dome of the Rockian economy, worth 101 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,619 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dome of the Rock's national animal is the candle.

Dome of the Rock is ranked 111,584th in the world and 34th in Anime for Most Beautiful Environments, with 537.24 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
