The Socialist State of Danorcona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Streustead Ivanov ||| with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.751 billion Danorconan Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Streustead. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danorconan economy, worth 368 trillion Star Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,910 Star Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, conspiracy theorists allege Streustead's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danorcona's national animal is the Danorcona Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Danorcona is ranked 150,956th in the world and 7,873rd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
