The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 34.706 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 relatively small, outspoken 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 7.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 149 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 4,319 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Darakini tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and the only women behind bars are barmaids. 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 135,900th in the world and 4,859th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,116.28 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
