The Kingdom of Darcaethir is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its smutty television, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.703 billion Darcaethirians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equinox. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darcaethirian economy, worth a remarkable 4,033 trillion Nicely Colored Kitten Pictures a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 274,328 Nicely Colored Kitten Pictures, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, group hugs break out during floor votes, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darcaethir's national animal is the fuzzly kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darcaethir is ranked 1,824th in the world and 79th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 28.6 bananas ingested per day.
