The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Questionable Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 33.684 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 38.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,558 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 165,033 chocolate coin ®s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, it's best to decline if Questionable Lady Darkesia offers to buy a round of drinks, and children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is. 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 3,221st in the world and 59th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 802 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
