The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tor Tong Lee with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.285 billion Darmenis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott City. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Darmeni economy, worth a remarkable 2,910 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 190,397 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 839,840 per year while the poor average 27,049, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darmen's national animal is the German Shepherd, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Darmen is ranked 19,775th in the world and 12th in Rushmore for Smartest Citizens, with 61.72 Quips Per Hour.
