The Phoenix Kingdom of Darastrixethe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lady Ledri Bensvelk with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 19.835 billion Darastrixi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Welfare and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darastrixethe. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darastrixian economy, worth a remarkable 3,408 trillion gold pieces a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,832 gold pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the official Darastrixian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Darastrixethe's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Xoism.

Darastrixethe is ranked 456th in the world and 1st in Haiku for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 13,539.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
