The Holy Empire of Darayava is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Himedara with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.519 billion Darayavans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darapolis. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darayavan economy, worth 595 trillion Vas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,879 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in Darayava have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darayava's national animal is the Kodkod, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darayava is ranked 9,258th in the world and 23rd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 4 Valid Endorsements.
