Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Medieval Principality of Danestate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Edmund IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The cynical population of 3.237 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 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danestatean economy, worth 279 trillion Ducats a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,341 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. 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 619th in Balder and 13,126th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 9 Whatever.
