The Colony of Red Dome is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.89 billion Red Domeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Red Domean economy, worth a remarkable 2,684 trillion Mars Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,926 Mars Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, a government program is underway to revitalize Red Dome's beaches, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Red Dome's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Dome is ranked 381st in the world and 20th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 178.49 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
