The Dictatorship of Black Keep is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dark Lord Malekith with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.227 billion Dark Elves 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Black Keepian economy, worth 96.4 trillion Slaves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,529 Slaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for Black Keep in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Keep's national animal is the tamed Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of Khaine.

Black Keep is ranked 76,075th in the world and 3,611th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 96.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
