The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.342 billion Edgelords are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glitch City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 239,201 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus to meetings with foreign heads of state, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the Dark Edgynessian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Edgyness's national animal is the defective bioweapon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is AnNihilism.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 168,287th in the world and 6,302nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -721.53 on the Hayek Index.
