The Commonwealth of The United Dark Republic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jacque de la Morte with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.297 billion Imperials hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouveau Kaas. The average income tax rate is 62.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,555 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,663 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, television executives are interested in turning Jacque de la Morte's zany home life into a sitcom, survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Dark Republic's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Dark Republic is ranked 72,512th in the world and 25th in New Western Atlantic for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 210,134 Standard Monetary Units.
