The United Dominion of LOVE DOG is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Caesar Jason Scotus Lupus with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.81 billion Dominionites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bucharest. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dominionite economy, worth a remarkable 7,269 trillion Commonwealth Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 305,316 Commonwealth Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LOVE DOG's national animal is the Demonic Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Eternal Light.

LOVE DOG is ranked 228,035th in the world and 30th in Gholgoth for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 35.68 Workforce Participation Rate.
