The Burning Trash Fire of Lord Dominator is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.373 billion Deedas are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Testing Zone 1. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Deeda economy, worth a remarkable 3,751 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 448,093 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,182,021 per year while the poor average 4,222, a ratio of 990 to 1.

Employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, black tea is only available on the black market, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lord Dominator's national animal is the Cockroach, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Entropism.

Lord Dominator is ranked 2,048th in the world and 4th in Forest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 21,187.9 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
