The Network of Darkweb is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Root with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.761 billion Darkwebians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Memory. The average income tax rate is 93.5%.

The thriving Darkwebian economy, worth a remarkable 1,261 trillion Bytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,589 Bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Darkweb flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Darkweb's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Linux.

Darkweb is ranked 3,910th in the world and 6th in Spiritus for Highest Crime Rates, with 24.07 Crimes Per Hour.
