The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 21.621 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 government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Industry and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 104 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 4,837 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and the Darakin Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. 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.
