The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 21.807 billion Darakini love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, socially-minded government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Industry and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 106 trillion shmingels a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,869 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the Darakin Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darakin's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
