The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.806 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, socially-minded 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,075 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 265,927 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best to decline if Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus offers to buy a round of drinks, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Justice.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 11,625th in the world and 173rd in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,317.72678165432 Days.
