The Interdimensional Domain of Particle is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by necromancer with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.461 billion horde are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 不死. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient evil economy, worth a remarkable 6,202 trillion hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 655,620 hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, books are so highly regarded in Particle that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown. Particle's national animal is the darkness, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 魔法.

Particle is ranked 150,531st in the world and 154th in Yggdrasil for Longest Average Lifespans, with 22.88 Years.
