The Scientific Powerhouse of Dark Matter is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Superintendent Aleister Crowley with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.891 billion Espers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Academy City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient scientific economy, worth a remarkable 5,190 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 373,634 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Matter's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Dark Matter is ranked 151st in the world and 2nd in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 245.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
