The Frosty Wastes of Daraln is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kira Rosberg with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 5.744 billion Daralnians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nye Rhendam. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Daralnian economy, worth 925 trillion Sharks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,207 Sharks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. Crime is totally unknown. Daraln's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is ᛒᛚᛁᚲᛊᚢᛗᛖᚾᛊᚱᛖᚨᚾ.

Daraln is ranked 77,157th in the world and 90th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 207,134 Standard Monetary Units.
