The Galactic Imperium Invictum of Darkium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Supreme Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.224 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 an astonishing 10,374 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 488,820 DSCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and torture is illegal. 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 173,766th in the world and 6,147th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 1.95 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
