Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Provisional President Tor Tong Lee with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, fear of technology, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 10.936 billion Darmenis are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Darmeni economy, worth a remarkable 1,720 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 157,339 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, and women who display their ankles are shunned by society. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Darmen is ranked 175,232nd in the world and 127th in Rushmore for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.35 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
