The Reaper of Lord Dominator is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.331 billion Deedas 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Education receive no funds. 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 6,780 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 508,633 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,760,056 per year while the poor average 4,627, a ratio of 1,028 to 1.

Mostly women are seen and not heard, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and the government prefers to take a hands-off approach to catastrophes. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Entropism.

Lord Dominator is ranked 10th in the world and 1st in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 99.34 Obesity Rate.
