The Insurgent Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.853 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 12,223 trillion Dollers 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 1,031,272 Dollers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,499,141 per year while the poor average 44,466, a ratio of 168 to 1.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, tabloids coo over Master Economist's expected child, everybody's got wood thanks to Master Economist, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. Crime, especially youth-related, 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, and its national religion is The Dark System.

The Dark System is ranked 171,152nd in the world and 16th in The Axis of Evil for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 31.75 Workforce Participation Rate.
