The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Overlord Phrecia Halburn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.216 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,506 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 Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 272,010 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. 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 1,853rd in the world and 20th in Europeia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,205.97 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
