Darkesia was Condemned by Security Council Resolution # 279

The Chocolate Leave of Absence of Darkesia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 32.478 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Defense and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. The average income tax rate is 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,338 trillion chocolate coin Žs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 164,364 chocolate coin Žs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient. Crime is well under control. Darkesia's national animal is the chocolate bunny™, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chocolatology.

Darkesia is ranked 179,401st in the world and 4,992nd in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
