The Mafian Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.964 billion Mafians 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 23,445 trillion Dollars 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 1,305,159 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 12,220,717 per year while the poor average 11,792, a ratio of 1,036 to 1.

Civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', Dark System Gladiators is a ratings success, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime 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 12,993rd in the world and 3rd in The Axis of Evil for Most Cultured, scoring 100 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
