Darc Reserve

Population3.824 billion


The Empire of Darc Reserve is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.824 billion Darc Reserveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Darc Reservean economy, worth 125 trillion euros 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 32,915 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darc Reserve's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Darc Reserve is ranked 165,444th in the world and 96th in Crystal Falls for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.48 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
