The Empire of Dark Metroid Prime is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.409 billion Metroids are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.2%.

The all-consuming Dark Metroid Primean economy, worth 148 trillion Phazon bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,245 Phazon bits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Metroid Prime's national animal is the Metroid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dark Metroid Prime is ranked 105,678th in the world and 15th in Imperium of the Wolf for Highest Drug Use, scoring 44.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
