The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 31.578 billion Darakini 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 5.0%.

The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 120 trillion shmingels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 3,826 shmingels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darakin's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darakin is ranked 155,837th in the world and 6,322nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -24.54 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
