The Empire of Darzing is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperator Joseph Teich with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.33 billion Darzingians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darzing City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Darzingian economy, worth 171 trillion Peso Darzingians a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,089 Peso Darzingians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darzing's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Darzing is ranked 12,917th in the world and 712th in The North Pacific for Highest Food Quality, scoring 142.68 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
