Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, lack of airports, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 21.544 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized 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 21.6%.

The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,626 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,510 chocolate coin Žs, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, child labor has been outlawed, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 440th in NationStates and 102,825th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -244 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
