The Optimistische Pessimisten of Dangertk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Puppeteer with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.81 billion Dangertkians 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 30%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, notable individuals are granted land and titles, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 10th in Nederland and 6,759th in the world for Safest, scoring 433 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
