The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Superintendent Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.612 billion Espers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, 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 4,786 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 379,513 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, the arms industry is strictly regulated, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, and the scientific Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. 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 518th in the world and 11th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,410.48 Tourists Per Hour.
