The Mafian Economic Extremist of The Dark System is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Master Economist with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, punitive income tax rates, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.113 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark System economy, worth an astonishing 19,816 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 1,229,825 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,512,918 per year while the poor average 11,142, a ratio of 1,033 to 1.

Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air The Dark System flights to avoid the pay lavatories, Master Economist's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, and Master Economist's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. 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 2nd in the world and 1st in The Axis of Evil for Highest Average Incomes, with 1.23 million Standard Monetary Units.
