The Socialist Republic of Dansha is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Secretary General Elizabeth Holland with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate population of 12.598 billion Danshans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Danshan economy, worth a remarkable 1,488 trillion Danshan Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,173 Danshan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imitation is the sincerest form of felony, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and Secretary General Elizabeth Holland's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dansha's national animal is the Danshan Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dansha is ranked 139,047th in the world and 4,794th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 15.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
