Darktow

Population424 million

The Republic of Darktow is a huge, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 424 million Darktowians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Darktowian economy, worth 31.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 73,622 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, and the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darktow's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darktow is ranked 186,295th in the world and 838th in Europeia for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.97 Crimes Per Hour.
