The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 27.921 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, Environment, and Healthcare 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 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 94.5 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 3,385 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBD Governor goes house hunting, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. 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 1,343rd in the world and 41st in the South Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 99.51 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
