The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by God-Emperor and High CEO Damian Kilgore with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.427 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.

Seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and cities are engulfed by smog. 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 211th in The Fascist Union and 112,100th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -83 on the Enoch Index.
