The Republic of Darbor is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Squash the Undaunted with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.175 billion Darbori 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 Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yetva. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Darborian economy, worth 100 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,374 US Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and the Federal Council of Darbor has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darbor's national animal is the cape buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darbor is ranked 22,964th in the world and 724th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 893.6 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
