Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 ban on automobiles, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.332 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with 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. The average income tax rate is 12.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,550 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 100,666 chocolate coin Žs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime is almost non-existent. 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 159,739th in the world and 7,199th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
