The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.977 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 30%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, cities are engulfed by smog, and it's always rabbit season. 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 19th in Nederland and 5,726th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 83 Dawkins.
