The Dominion of Protonfield is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 627 million Protonfieldians 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, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proton City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Protonfieldian economy, worth 88.0 trillion Blosfords a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 140,321 Blosfords, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 734,544 per year while the poor average 14,381, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Protonfield's national animal is the Gerbil, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Protonfield is ranked 23,110th in the world and 688th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77.67 on the Rand Index.
