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 remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.267 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 Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.5%.

The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,979 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 88,916 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 16th in Atlantic and 139,366th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -38 Whatever.
