The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Superintendent Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.204 billion Espers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. 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 4,845 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 large, well-organized, 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 397,024 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, Phoenix sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Dark Matter. 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 469th in the world and 11th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 98.83 on the Human Development Index.
