The Ascended Dominion of Dark_Warchief is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dark_Warchief with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.414 billion Darkians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkian economy, worth a remarkable 8,783 trillion Iridium Coins a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 430,281 Iridium Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,349,336 per year while the poor average 105,132, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

The Darkopolis Film Festival recently voted 'Darkian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. Crime is totally unknown. Dark_Warchief's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Universal Truth.

Dark_Warchief is ranked 7,694th in the world and 318th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,717.99 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
