The Dominion of Supreme Authority is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Overseer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.746 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, 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 1,990 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, fairly 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 346,454 CENSOREDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, the fate of the world literally rests on The Overseer's fingers, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. 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 139,744th in the world and 5th in The Imperial Consortium for Fattest Citizens, with 8.12 Obesity Rate.
