The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 31.727 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense and Environment also on the agenda, 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 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,214 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 164,364 chocolate coin ®s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient. Crime is well under control. 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 591st in the world and 18th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 236.77 Bank.
