The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tor Tong Lee with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.19 billion Darmenis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, corrupt government 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 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Darmeni economy, worth a remarkable 3,704 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 203,646 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, the single-issue Chocolates for Convicts Party recently won several council seats, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers. 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 194,358th in the world and 105th in Rushmore for Most Primitive, scoring -308.37 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
