Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Medieval Principality of Danestate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Edmund IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 4.404 billion Danes 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 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danestatean economy, worth 423 trillion Ducats a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 96,198 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, 'Coloniser-in-Chief' has become King Edmund IV's new moniker, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 18,658th in the world and 988th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,558.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
