The United Kingdoms of Danceria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Aceus Elurín with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.035 billion Dancerians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrasilia. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dancerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Librums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 167,646 Librums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, the Great Dancerian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and Dancerians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danceria's national animal is the Tusked Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dancerian Valarism.

Danceria is ranked 166,564th in the world and 10th in Gwalethia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
