The Republic of Darok is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 194 million Darokians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The very strong Darokian economy, worth 12.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 65,036 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,908 per year while the poor average 10,799, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, anti-government web sites are springing up, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Darokian roads, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darok's national animal is the rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Darok is ranked 52,588th in the world and 3rd in The United Nations of Relative Logic for Fattest Citizens, with 12.68 Obesity Rate.
