The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Phrecia Halburn with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.686 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 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,339 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 269,285 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, the might of the entire Dark Edgynessian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and the military has gone fission for more funding. 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 42,593rd in the world and 1,415th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 94.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
