The Galactic Imperium Invictum of Darkium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Supreme Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.748 billion Darkians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dawn's City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkiumian economy, worth a remarkable 9,543 trillion DSCS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 483,279 DSCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkium's national animal is the Imperial Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult.

Darkium is ranked 170,730th in the world and 5,656th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 0.87 Obesity Rate.
