The Holy Violet Fluff Invasion of Darcania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Zephyr kul Sanguine with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.771 billion Darcanians 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klarliert. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Darcanian economy, worth 700 trillion dracs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,100 dracs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are forbidden to enter Native Darcanian lands, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Darcanian Embarrassments, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is totally unknown. Darcania's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Weldyrglyr.

Darcania is ranked 31,750th in the world and 1,566th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 153.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
