The Caribbean Island of Dominican Republic is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.475 billion Dominican Republicians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santo Domingo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dominican Republician economy, worth a remarkable 3,368 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 172,987 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,993 per year while the poor average 27,827, a ratio of 25.5 to 1.

It is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Dominican Republician restaurants, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dominican Republic's national animal is the spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dominican Republic is ranked 240,686th in the world and 182nd in belgium for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -23.66 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
