The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.3 billion Puppets 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 devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaandam. The average income tax rate is 34%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dangertk's national animal is the beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Pessimism, and its currency is the bottle.

Dangertk is ranked 31st in Nederland and 10,116th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 6 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
