The Powerhungry dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Damien Xavier with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.977 billion Darkfullians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 910 trillion Darklesses 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 228,952 Darklesses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, AI nannies tell children who refuse to go to bed that "my logic is undeniable", the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and the new Crow Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkfull's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Damiesm.

Darkfull is ranked 4,043rd in the world and 73rd in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 559.83 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
