The Holy Empire of Holy Dominate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Porphyrogenitus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.336 billion Dominateans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augusta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dominatean economy, worth 796 trillion Imperial dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 238,851 Imperial dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 998,698 per year while the poor average 37,233, a ratio of 26.8 to 1.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love Porphyrogenitus, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, and Porphyrogenitus has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Dominate's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult.

Holy Dominate is ranked 110,331st in the world and 4,838th in Osiris for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
