The United States of Dartle is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Hatfield with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.312 billion Dartleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klarkington. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dartlean economy, worth 517 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,253 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, there's no representation without taxation, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and Dartlean watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dartle's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dartle is ranked 191,859th in the world and 6,780th in Balder for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.88 Crimes Per Hour.
