The Dictatorship of Darndof is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 222 million Darndofians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Darndofian economy, worth 9.84 trillion Darndofian marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 44,336 Darndofian marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Darndofian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, replacement organs are grown in vats, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darndof's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Darndof is ranked 149,136th in the world and 7,708th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 6.05 Prayers Per Hour.
