The Commonwealth of Darren j is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Darren with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.033 billion Darren jians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Darren jian economy, worth 570 trillion dollors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 187,954 dollors, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darren j's national animal is the lions, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Darren j is ranked 8,875th in the world and 113th in Capitalist Paradise for Rudest Citizens, with 114.23 Insults Per Minute.
