Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 21.712 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.2%.

The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion chocolate coin ®s a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 76,034 chocolate coin ®s, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, strategic bombers are being converted into preschools, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and Chocolate bunny™ is one of the most popular forenames in Darkesia. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny™, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.

Darkesia is ranked 5,591st in the Pacific and 111,609th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 1 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
