The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Tor Tong Lee with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, devout population of 12.523 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, moralistic morass — 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 2,020 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,314 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. 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 31,470th in the world and 12th in Rushmore for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,704.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
