The Powerhungry dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Damien Xavier with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.17 billion Darkfullians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 404 trillion Darklesses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,282 Darklesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, workers have seized control of the economy, and five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkfull's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Damiesm.

Darkfull is ranked 27,895th in the world and 1,214th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 63.11 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
