The Dominion of The Cinder Plains is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Markus Incineratus with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.064 billion Degenerates 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Conflagration. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cinder Plainsian economy, worth 217 trillion Cosmic Fragments a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 204,668 Cosmic Fragments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Markus Incineratus goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, the TCPBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime is totally unknown. The Cinder Plains's national animal is the Ember worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cinder Plains is ranked 159,168th in the world and 6,087th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
