The Imperial McCameyist State of Dark Socialism is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Traniborus Artko Specien with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.108 billion Irouvians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sygonia 01. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Irouvian economy, worth 72.8 trillion Labor Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,713 Labor Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and Dark Socialism is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Socialism's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dark Socialism is ranked 145,318th in the world and 38th in Farkasfalka for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
