Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 12.38 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaandam. The average income tax rate is 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dangertkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,683 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 136,006 bottles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and citizens must have a license to operate a computer. 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 100th in Nederland and 144,961st in the world for Most Devout, scoring -177 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
