The Foreboding Tyranny of Dark Edgyness is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Vexnar Tyrannus with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.069 billion Edgelords are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glitch City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Edgynessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,481 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 244,077 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and the native owl population is in permanent hibernation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark Edgyness's national animal is the defective bioweapon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is AnNihilism.

Dark Edgyness is ranked 12,036th in the world and 287th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,079.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
