The Medieval Principality of Danestate is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Edmund IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.882 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

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 the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Anglicanism, and its currency is the Ducat.

Danestate is ranked 64th in British Isles and 32,195th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
