The Dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gamalicus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.648 billion Darkfullians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 314 trillion Darklesses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 191,011 Darklesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkfull's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Darkfull is ranked 147,841st in the world and 5,392nd in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 41.51 Workforce Participation Rate.
