The Citizen's Republic of Darianicus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Darian with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.687 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brahman. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Anti-government web sites are springing up, the Darianicus Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and guns are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darianicus's national animal is the jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Shnek.
