The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.99 billion 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.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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 80th in Nederland and 101,131st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.059 Stalins.
