Dark Chocolate Enthusiasts

Population322 million


The Community of Dark Chocolate Enthusiasts is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 322 million intellectuals are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 25.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong smart economy, worth 21.6 trillion Chocoes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 66,983 Chocoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation, nudity is frowned upon, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dark Chocolate Enthusiasts's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dark Chocolate Enthusiasts is ranked 60,188th in the world and 104th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring 38.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
