The Mafian Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.594 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 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 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 20,800 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 1,253,506 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,735,592 per year while the poor average 11,344, a ratio of 1,034 to 1.

New treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements. 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 71st in the world and 3rd in The Axis of Evil for Highest Economic Output, with 20,800 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
