The Mafian Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.718 billion Dark Systems are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark System Main Command Centre. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 20,993 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 1,255,754 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,756,550 per year while the poor average 11,366, a ratio of 1,034 to 1.

The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, citizens queue to get the reinstated bank notes and coins, the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dark System's national animal is the Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dark System is ranked 27th in the world and 2nd in The Axis of Evil for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 24,711.68 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
