The compactification of extra dimensions may lead to conserved parities on the effective 4-dim models, thus offering a natural Dark Matter candidate. I will discuss how un-generic this feature is, and how it can be efficiently used to select interesting orbifolds for model building. Finally, I will briefly describe the LHC phenomenology of the minimal case in flat space. the Real Projective Plane.
