The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 35.18 billion Darakini love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darakin Citadel. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 153 trillion shmingels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,356 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, gossip magazines have pictures of Ashton Q Westchester III sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darakin's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darakin is ranked 233,344th in the world and 8,065th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.13 Obesity Rate.
