Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.672 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 23.7%.

The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,006 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 88,514 chocolate coin Žs, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, the government has implemented minimum wage laws, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, 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 13th in Atlantic and 85,163rd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
