The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 11.711 billion Puppets 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaandam. The average income tax rate is 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dangertkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,596 trillion bottles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 136,294 bottles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dangertk's national animal is the beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pessimism.

Dangertk is ranked 26th in Nederland and 34,985th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 23 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
