The Chocolate Loving Paradise of Darkesia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Most Serene Lady Darkesia with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29.807 billion Darkesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Cacao. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Darkesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,885 trillion chocolate coin ®s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,368 chocolate coin ®s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 426,834 per year while the poor average 29,907, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Eminent domain has been abolished, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, Most Serene Lady Darkesia has incinerated the international climate treaty in a public coal-burning ceremony, and food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 59,142nd in the world and 2,189th in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 11.41 Kickbacks Per Hour.
