The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 20.795 billion Darkesians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The large, 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 36.1%.
The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,399 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 67,321 chocolate coin Žs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 230,965 per year while the poor average 14,402, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.
Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Fortress Cacao Times is sold out, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.
