Religion in the Domination of Eiler

Actually, "chain-of-command" would be a better term than "religion".

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  
	Who has set thy glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength 
		because of thine enemies,
	that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?  
	And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
	thou hast put all things under his feet.

(Psalm 8: 1, 2, 5, 6)

The Domination of Eiler considers this bit of Judeo-Christian scripture to apply to it, as much as it applies to any of the works of man.

Through most of history, most of mankind was governed by empire-states, which claimed judgment over everything they could, but gave their occupants autonomy as the emperors saw fit. But "empire" is a specific term, invented by the Romans to avoid using the term "king".

The precise term "Empire" applies only to the Roman Empire and its successor states. And there's one empire in particular, which serves as the model for the Domination of Eiler. Through most of the two+ millenia Anno Domini, western Europe was governed by the Holy Roman Empire.

The concept of a nation-state, with absolute jurisdiction within a limited territory, is a recent development. And as long as any nation-state can dispute the judgment of another nation-state without binding arbitration, the concept of the nation-state cannot be said to be successful.

For this reason, the Domination disdains the nation-state political model. It instead embraces the time-honored model of the Emperor, Defender of the Faithful, Fist of God.

The Domination of Eiler considers itself to be part of an imperial framework encompassing all mankind, with no superior power except the Kingdom of Heaven (which all Christian emperors acknowledged also). As such, the term "empire" may apply, but the terms "nation" and "micronation" are not applicable to the Domination.

The term "religion" is not directly applicable to Domination religious practice. To the Domination leadership, it's just a chain of command. It may be silent much of the time, and it may be subtle when it speaks, but it is still the Kingdom of Heaven, and it is to be obeyed.

The Domination's religious practice is based on Christian concepts, but it avoids the fluffy-bunny Santa Claus concept of God that some Christians believe in, especially at Christmas and Easter. Instead, the Domination emphasizes the concept that the One Maker can reveal himself as a dread thing to see face to face, and you'd best submit to him. But once you submit, the One Maker is merciful. Much like the Domination itself.

Of course the Dominator is unworthy to be the partner of the One Maker. By Christian doctrine, all humans are likewise unworthy. But by that same doctrine, God created humans to be his underlings, and forgives humanity's sin and imperfection once we submit.

So be it. The Domination of Eiler submits to the rule of Heaven. And if the One Maker wills it, perhaps the Dominator may be as worthy of the mandate of Heaven as any other human ever was.

The Domination acknowledges its rightous duty to lead its most sensible citizens in religious practice. It has an officer for this purpose: the Bishop-Principal.

Of course, the Domination observes most major Christian holidays, including Christmas. But due to the multi-ethnic nature of the Domination's citizenry, the Domination's holiday customs deserve some separate description.

Some people ask, can one achieve transcendance? Which is to say, can one ever feel that one has surpassed the universe? In the Domination of Eiler, the answer is, Of Course.

This achievement is not occasional; it is continuous. The higher command expects it. Earthly authorities expect no less, when they demand 24 x 7 pager coverage. The Domination leadership does not submit to this requirement from humans, but it does from the Kingdom of Heaven. Some commands come from there by way of dreams, though mostly by that channel the hierarchy gives input to the Domination's fiction-blog.

Even in normal life, every normal thing is a reminder of the mission of the Domination of Eiler. Even seeing a fat woman walk her puppy down the street is a reminder, both those creatures are citizens of the Domination of Eiler, and it is the will of the One Maker that the Dominator live among them and grant them the aid of his peacekeeping forces.

One might think, perhaps the Dominator is deluding himself that he is chosen of the Kingdom of Heaven to assume the mantle of the political leader of Christendom and humankind. But the more the Domination of Eiler operates under this principle, the more it makes sense just as much as any other political principle. It even explains certain weather patterns, to the extent that places where the Dominator wants to ride his bike to work, get less rain than other places.

And at least the Dominator has overcome any problems he ever had with self-esteem.
