The Republic of Darmen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Joshua Rademacher with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.676 billion Darmenis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scott City. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Darmeni economy, worth a remarkable 4,168 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 211,878 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,329,709 per year while the poor average 14,265, a ratio of 93.2 to 1.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darmen's national animal is the German Shepherd, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Darmen is ranked 105,905th in the world and 34th in Rushmore for Most Extreme, scoring 18.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
