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 renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.987 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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the government has the power to seize property at will, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 110th in The Fascist Union and 108,717th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 17 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
