The Capitalist Utopia of GrimDark is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by God-Emperor and High CEO Damian Kilgore with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.785 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.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 190th in The Fascist Union and 114,262nd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -481 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
