The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter

The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Superintendent Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.599 billion Espers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Academy City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient scientific economy, worth a remarkable 5,313 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 390,754 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and Snapgram-filtered portraits adorn the walls of stately homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Matter's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Dark Matter is ranked 1,859th in the world and 25th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 6,714.72 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
