The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 30.703 billion Darkesians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The medium-sized 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,296 trillion chocolate coin ®s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 139,925 chocolate coin ®s, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 619,935 per year while the poor average 19,724, a ratio of 31.4 to 1.
Darkesia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, the military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny™, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.
