The Burning Trash Fire of Lord Dominator is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.38 billion Deedas are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Testing Zone 1. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Deeda economy, worth a remarkable 3,756 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 448,213 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,894,215 per year while the poor average 8,176, a ratio of 476 to 1.

No cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, movie references are legally admissible in court, and the term "Native Deeda" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lord Dominator's national animal is the Cockroach, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Entropism.

Lord Dominator is ranked 220,760th in the world and 405th in Forest for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.23 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
