The United States of Dom Islana is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.56 billion Dom Islanans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dom Islanan economy, worth 397 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 155,381 Bricks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 563,926 per year while the poor average 30,492, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Brick treacle machine, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Dom Islana as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dom Islana's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dom Islana is ranked 152,603rd in the world and 5,763rd in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 11.87 Atheism Rate.
