The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by God-Emperor and High CEO Damian Kilgore with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.471 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and atheists and evolutionary biologists are fleeing the country like rats from a sinking ship. 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 214th in The Fascist Union and 112,008th in the world for Best Weather, with -2,404 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
