The Holy Republic of The Dolanets islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by God-elected Pope Barylov I with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.119 billion Dolanetians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karstad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dolanetian economy, worth 683 trillion Dhirmas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 219,148 Dhirmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,113,498 per year while the poor average 23,865, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

The military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and for 25 Dhirmas tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Dolanets islands's national animal is the Pit viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dolanetian Orthodox.

The Dolanets islands is ranked 7,781st in the world and 224th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 16.44 Weapons Per Person.
