The Empire of The Black Organization is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 526 million Italians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Vatican City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Organizational economy, worth 60.0 trillion Black Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,001 Black Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 722,223 per year while the poor average 7,486, a ratio of 96.5 to 1.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, visitors to The Black Organization are microchipped and must be escorted by a Black Organizational soldier - even to the bathroom, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Organization's national animal is the Black Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Black Organization is ranked 8,220th in the world and 2nd in The Great Monarchical Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 349.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
