Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Tor Tong Lee with an even hand, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 11.455 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Darmeni economy, worth a remarkable 1,821 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. Average income is an impressive 159,013 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, and students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class. 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 141,289th in the world and 115th in Rushmore for Fattest Citizens, with 6.16 Obesity Rate.
