The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by God-Emperor and High CEO Damian Kilgore with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.969 billion GrimDarkians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Primus. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. GrimDark's national animal is the freedom bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Truth, and its currency is the Dominion.

GrimDark is ranked 2nd in The Fascist Union and 8,308th in the world for Largest Populations, with 9,969 Capita (millions).
