The Mafia Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.397 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 18,461 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 1,199,001 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,222,273 per year while the poor average 10,890, a ratio of 1,030 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, safe drinking water is considered a luxury, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 222nd in the world and 2nd in The Axis of Evil for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 35,720.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
