LeaderAshton Q Westchester III


The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 33.325 billion Darakini are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 137 trillion shmingels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,129 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Darakin Citadel" t-shirts, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and Viagra factories are being converted to producing antimalarials for Bigtopian orphans. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darakin's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darakin is ranked 208,061st in the world and 8,346th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -25.88 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
