The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Questionable Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 36.326 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Defense and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. The average income tax rate is 38.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 6,015 trillion chocolate coin ®s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 165,601 chocolate coin ®s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's all quiet on the western front, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and Information Technology facilities are being turned into chocolate bunny™ habitats. 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 152,841st in the world and 4,828th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
