The Mafia Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.091 billion Dark Systems are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark System Main Command Centre. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 17,968 trillion Dollers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 1,190,654 Dollers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,143,151 per year while the poor average 10,826, a ratio of 1,029 to 1.

People think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dark System's national animal is the Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dark System is ranked 205,593rd in the world and 9th in The Axis of Evil for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -58.99 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
