The United States of Dom Islana is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.588 billion Dom Islanans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dom Islanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,244 trillion Bricks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 188,979 Bricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff. Crime is well under control. Dom Islana's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dom Islana is ranked 43,285th in the world and 1,521st in Balder for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,775.11 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
