The Republic of Darudere is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 909 million Darudereans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 31.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Daruderean economy, worth 35.3 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,810 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and Darudere's fine wines are renowned throughout the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darudere's national animal is the emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Darudere is ranked 208,654th in the world and 20th in Cherry Blossom Kiss for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -4.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
