Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.853 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, although Defense and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. The average income tax rate is 10.9%.

The thriving Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,099 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 88,010 chocolate coin Žs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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.

Darkesia is ranked 38,387th in the world and 1,764th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,215.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
