The Kingdom of Darkmen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by agustus nero with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.515 billion Darkmenians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkmen City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Darkmenian economy, worth a remarkable 7,018 trillion human femaleses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 519,348 human femaleses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,864,235 per year while the poor average 4,675, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

The nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Darkmen's national animal is the rancors, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Darkmen is ranked 1,085th in the world and 49th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,623.96 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
