The Powerhungry dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Damien Xavier with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.783 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 91.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 866 trillion Darklesses 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 228,958 Darklesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Skyscrapers get built in just days, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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, and its national religion is Damiesm.

Darkfull is ranked 168,064th in the world and 6,562nd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -62.22 on the Rand Index.
