The Absolute Dictatorship of Darkfull is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stephan Xavier with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.133 billion Darkfullians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth a remarkable 1,260 trillion Darklesses a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 245,505 Darklesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the holiday spirit must not be taken to the max, and kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkfull's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Damiesm.

Darkfull is ranked 2,526th in the world and 60th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,082 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
