The Aeonian Citadel of Darakin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ashton Q Westchester III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 33.476 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, socially-minded 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 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Darakini economy, worth 139 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 4,158 shmingels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Darakin Citadel" t-shirts, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and Viagra factories are being converted to producing antimalarials for Bigtopian orphans. 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 143,918th in the world and 5,238th in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 31.33 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
