The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.322 billion Edgelords are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glitch City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 238,703 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Dark Edgyness in search of defective bioweapons, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Edgyness's national animal is the defective bioweapon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is AnNihilism.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 155,739th in the world and 5,983rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
