The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Phrecia Halburn with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.191 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, socially-minded, 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,491 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 Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,098 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spies caught in Dark Edgyness are never heard from again, Edgelords believe manners maketh the leader, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Justice.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 140,339th in the world and 344th in Europeia for Largest Black Market, with 176 billion Standard Monetary Units.
