The Federal Republic of Darkanistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Henry Pearce with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.4 billion Darkans 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkania. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkan economy, worth 607 trillion Republican Darkas 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,821 Republican Darkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, meat-eating is frowned upon, and The Pipe Bomb Makers' Pop-Up Book can be found in preschool libraries. Crime is totally unknown. Darkanistan's national animal is the Opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darkanistan is ranked 2,649th in the world and 149th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 332.28 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
