The Galactic Imperium Invictum of Darkium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Supreme Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.241 billion Darkians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dawn's City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkiumian economy, worth an astonishing 10,922 trillion DSCS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 491,112 DSCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Environmental legislation occurs cyclically, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkium's national animal is the Imperial Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult.

Darkium is ranked 55,357th in the world and 2,183rd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,805.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
