The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29.831 billion Darkesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,990 trillion chocolate coin ®s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 133,760 chocolate coin ®s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 445,942 per year while the poor average 29,872, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, a third of Darkesians are e-certified CEOs, Darkesians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime. Crime is relatively low. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny™, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.

Darkesia is ranked 7,166th in the world and 167th in the West Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.1 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
