The Holy Violet Fluff Invasion of Darcania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Scian kul Kroning with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.883 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 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Darcanian economy, worth 622 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 90,380 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 159,869th in the world and 8,605th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -161.69 on the Hayek Index.
