The Dominion of The Captain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, vat-grown people, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.429 billion Captainians 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Captain City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Captainian economy, worth an astonishing 24,218 trillion TDU Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 647,050 TDU Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,585,560 per year while the poor average 30,474, a ratio of 150 to 1.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Captain's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Captain is ranked 11,839th in the world and 25th in Wysteria for Most Stationary, with 1,251.53758790432 Days.
