The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Most High CEO Caligula Kilgore with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.882 billion 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.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. 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 Caligula.

GrimDark is ranked 1st in The Fascist Union and 157th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 24 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
