The Dominion of The Captain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 40.3 billion Captainians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt 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 27,279 trillion TDU Credits 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 a breathtaking 676,920 TDU Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

An inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, millions of TDU Credits have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Eagle Disease, and it's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 11,583rd in the world and 14th in Wysteria for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,471.18 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
