The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Superintendent Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.764 billion Espers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Academy City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient scientific economy, worth a remarkable 6,630 trillion Euros 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 395,542 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, would-be mescaline users often describe a crawling sensation on their skin, children spout "Quin tu suspendis te?" involuntarily throughout the day, and the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Matter's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Dark Matter is ranked 31,657th in the world and 282nd in Europe for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,676.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
