The Republic of Saint-Domingues is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.257 billion Saint-Dominguans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port-Républicain. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Saint-Dominguan economy, worth 84.6 trillion livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,335 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint-Domingues's national animal is the trogon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Saint-Domingues is ranked 166,035th in the world and 6,656th in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 85.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
