The Dominion of Supreme Authority is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Overseer with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.742 billion subjects are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dominionist economy, worth a remarkable 5,217 trillion CENSOREDS 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 409,487 CENSOREDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, The Overseer's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, and police nightsticks see use all day long. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Supreme Authority's national animal is the PETS ARE OUTLAWED, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is RELIGION IS OUTLAWED.

Supreme Authority is ranked 266,233rd in the world and 11,890th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -23.54 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
