The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.456 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 33%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, birth rates have hit an all-time low, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 97th in Nederland and 114,377th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
