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 8.844 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.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. 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 2nd in The Fascist Union and 3,398th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 31 Whatever.
