The Soviet Star Union of Dacori is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Aleksei Orlovsky with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.937 billion Dacorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kovrolsk. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dacorian economy, worth 218 trillion Jienars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 112,953 Jienars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of Dacorian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dacori's national animal is the Antuar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Krang.

Dacori is ranked 136,584th in the world and 39th in Novus Lucidum for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -101.61 on the Hayek Index.
