The Confederacy of Darkvoxlands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Vox with an iron fist, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.263 billion Darkvoxlandsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkvoxia. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Darkvoxlandsian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 3,255 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Darkvoxlands has designated Darkvoxia as its capital city, The Dark Side has been named as Darkvoxlands's national religion, and Dr Vox has just been declared ruler of Darkvoxlands in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darkvoxlands's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dark Side.

Darkvoxlands is ranked 123,145th in the world and 2nd in Aetenia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 37.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
