The Kingdom of Darkmen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by agustus nero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.912 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, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 9,683 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 Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 540,589 human femaleses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,432,038 per year while the poor average 13,985, a ratio of 316 to 1.

Sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and doctors are encouraged to 'pull the plug' any time the government has a budget crisis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Darkmen's national animal is the rancors, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Darkmen is ranked 86,234th in the world and 3,630th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,508.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
