The Network of Darkweb is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Root with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.766 billion Darkwebians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Memory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.1%.

The Darkwebian economy, worth a remarkable 1,777 trillion Bytes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. 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 151,036 Bytes, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Screams of citizens being "re-educated" echo throughout the rural regions of Darkweb, helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, teens reminisce about when birthdays weren't celebrated with a cool glass of cabbage juice and a slice of corn-cream topped millet cake, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkweb's national animal is the Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Linux.

Darkweb is ranked 2,985th in the world and 3rd in Spiritus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12,769.68 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
