The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.602 billion Dangertkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 26%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 84th in Nederland and 95,889th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.043 Stalins.
