The Network of Darkweb is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Root with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.01 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Memory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.0%.

The Darkwebian economy, worth a remarkable 1,804 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, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. 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 180,275 Bytes, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax Bytes each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkweb's national animal is the Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Linux.

Darkweb is ranked 8,056th in the world and 17th in Spiritus for Most Secular, with 94.48 Atheism Rate.
