The Medieval Principality of Danestate is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Edmund IV with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.082 billion Danestateans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danestatean economy, worth 257 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 83,535 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danestate's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Danestate is ranked 52nd in British Isles and 16,589th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 226.25 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
