The United States of The Land of the Dogs is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dago with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.65 billion Land of the Dogsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dog City. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Land of the Dogsian economy, worth 908 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,142 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Land of the Dogsians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of the Dogs's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Land of the Dogs is ranked 267,847th in the world and 6,504th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.33 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
