The Network of Darkweb is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Root with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.138 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, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Memory. The average income tax rate is 93.6%.

The powerhouse Darkwebian economy, worth a remarkable 1,416 trillion Bytes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 198,470 Bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Root holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings, and purple armbands are being issued to Violetists for ease of identification. Crime is a serious 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 120,730th in the world and 214th in Spiritus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
