The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by God-Emperor and High CEO Damian Kilgore with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.162 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.

Government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and military spending recently hit a new high. 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 1st in The Fascist Union and 182nd in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 27 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
