The Republic of Darktow is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 628 million Darktowians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Throne Roost. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Darktowian economy, worth 52.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 83,353 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, Leader is considering changing the Darktowian flag to one with more glitter, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darktow's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darktow is ranked 15,001st in the world and 194th in Europeia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,496.6 Tourists Per Hour.
