The Parliamentary Republic of Dankstergrad is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shay Castava with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.867 billion Danksterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Danksterian economy, worth 786 trillion Gradios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,599 Gradios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For 25 Gradios tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and incidents involving lethal string attacks have gone way up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dankstergrad's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of All Worlds.

Dankstergrad is ranked 156,427th in the world and 7,125th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.66 Obesity Rate.
