The Empire of Dark Age Land is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Forge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.642 billion Dark Age Landians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel. The average income tax rate is 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Age Landian economy, worth a remarkable 2,625 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 192,436 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, Dark Age Landian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Age Land's national animal is the Manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dark Age Land is ranked 207,485th in the world and 6,696th in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 17.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
