The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, humorless population of 5.501 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glitch City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 239,034 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Glitch City, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. 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 AnNihilism.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 118,347th in the world and 4,235th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
