The Empire of Dark Age Land is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Forge with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.247 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, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel. The average income tax rate is 15.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Age Landian economy, worth a remarkable 2,293 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 187,240 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, colonial subjects have Dark Age Landian culture shoved down their throats, and a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order. 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 138,216th in the world and 393rd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 309.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
