The Powerhungry dictatorship of Darkfull is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Damien Xavier with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.038 billion Darkfullians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightless city. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darkfullian economy, worth 388 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 a large, well-organized, 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 impressive 190,553 Darklesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Childish pranks are no laughing matter, schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, abaci are burned at the stake for being calculating, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Damiesm.

Darkfull is ranked 64,050th in the world and 2,613th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,040.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
