The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.485 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. The average income tax rate is 11.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,225 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 90,894 chocolate coin Žs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Darkesian Space Agency. Crime is totally unknown. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.
