The Mafian Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.783 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 19,159 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 1,213,949 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,363,002 per year while the poor average 11,015, a ratio of 1,031 to 1.

It's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps, Dark System watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and titles of nobility are packaged with Dark System citizenship in invite-only auctions. 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.

The Dark System is ranked 229,713th in the world and 40th in The Axis of Evil for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.48 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
