The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Tor Tong Lee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.32 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, well-organized 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 2,933 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 191,499 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 900,091 per year while the poor average 24,241, a ratio of 37.1 to 1.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. 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 16,975th in the world and 4th in Rushmore for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,421.22 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
