The Imperial Reich of The Very Dark Place is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm Alkröph X with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.069 billion imperials 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bösehaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth 197 trillion Axes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 184,287 Axes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,363,809 per year while the poor average 7,457, a ratio of 182 to 1.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Very Dark Place's national animal is the Imperial Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Kränterism.

The Very Dark Place is ranked 227,199th in the world and 359th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -17.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
