The Federation of Dantek is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sarven Icakas with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.556 billion Danteks 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanettara. The average income tax rate is 39.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dantek economy, worth 382 trillion strals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,739 strals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the children of Dantek are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dantek's national animal is the nerd shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Nerdanity.

Dantek is ranked 35,863rd in the world and 1,358th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.3 law-abiding acts per hour.
