The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.761 billion Edgelords are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glitch City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,063 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 265,933 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-soul mansions, and it's best to decline if Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus offers to buy a round of drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Edgyness's national animal is the defective bioweapon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Justice.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 2,646th in the world and 79th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.43 Years.
