The Kingdom of Darkmen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by agustus nero with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.098 billion Darkmenians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkmen City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Darkmenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,035 trillion human femaleses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 498,653 human femaleses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,495,959 per year while the poor average 129,831, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, people all over Darkmen are dying of 'Mad Rancors Disease', tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Darkmen's national animal is the rancors, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Darkmen is ranked 41st in the world and 1st in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,314.52 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
