The Dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gamalicus with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.303 billion Darkfullians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 246 trillion Darklesses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,932 Darklesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and consumers are free to choose - so long as they choose Eckie-Ecola or Eckie-Cola. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkfull's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Darkfull is ranked 165,350th in the world and 6,234th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 34.54 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
