Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 26.857 billion Darakini love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education and Environment are also considered important, while Industry and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 86.5 trillion shmingels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 3,219 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Darakini. 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 140,193rd in the world and 5,604th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.83 Crimes Per Hour.
