The Galactic Imperium Invictum of Darkium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Supreme Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 24.5 billion Darkians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 Dawn's City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkiumian economy, worth an astonishing 12,066 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 492,503 DSCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Darkians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, the doctor has cold hands, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. 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 63rd in the world and 4th in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 101.23 years.
