The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.305 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, well-organized 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,220 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 267,358 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. 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 32,830th in the world and 1,137th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,692.17 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
