The Red Empire of Popo Darkness Land is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Popo with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.172 billion Popo Darkness Landians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kami's Lookout. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Popo Darkness Landian economy, worth 986 trillion Senzu Beans 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 190,668 Senzu Beans, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 570,301 per year while the poor average 49,854, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", reddish-brown is the new black, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, and children seem to be getting better at lying these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Popo Darkness Land's national animal is the Dinosaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Popoism.

Popo Darkness Land is ranked 7,939th in the world and 1st in Chuggaaconroy Regime for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 90.48 Effective Tax Rate.
