The Terran Dominion, sometimes simply known as the Dominion, is a terran government. Under Arcturus Mengsk, the Dominion was an absolute monarchy, though this was a fact that he tried not to reinforce.[54] The Dominion possesses a nobility with great wealth.[126] Like the Confederacy, the Dominion maintains a senate of elected planetary representatives .Internally, the Dominion rules through oppression, fear and surveillance and makes extensive use of propaganda in order to control its citizens.[127] It has outlawed "crimes" such as hitchhiking and squatting,[128] has banned the airing of "subversive" music,[129] and is somewhat corrupt.[40] Externally, as Mengsk once put it, "tyrants can only survive by presenting a greater tyrant as a threat."[130] The Dominion maintains a somewhat aggressive stance towards its neighbors. Groups such as the Umojan Protectorate and the UED Expeditionary Fleet remnants are labeled as "racial traitors" in propaganda[59] and the zerg and protoss are portrayed as distinct threats.[59][64][131] The Dominion claims that it is the only effective defense against the Swarm;[132] a force that during the years after the Brood War, it claimed was dormant, though many within its military structure knew otherwise.[62] The Dominion's predecessor, the Terran Confederacy, is also demonized.[59] For the citizens of the Dominion, anything alien is a threat to be reported to the authorities. It become a major player in the Second War when they joined the Imperialist Alliance and the Nationalist Alliance during the Nationalist Wars.
