The Magocracy of The Dark Domain is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Dark Figure with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.604 billion Domainans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mageopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Domain economy, worth a remarkable 3,981 trillion Skulls a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 414,561 Skulls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,192,013 per year while the poor average 114,583, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, and Domainans have become death, the destroyer of worlds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dark Domain's national animal is the Transfigured Packbeast, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dark Figureism.

The Dark Domain is ranked 55,496th in the world and 1st in The Endless Dark for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,264.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
