The Nomadic Peoples of Danternoust is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, devout population of 3.914 billion Danternusians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megadel. The average income tax rate is 45.1%.

The Danternoustian economy, worth 188 trillion kilojoules a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 48,266 kilojoules, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danternoust's national animal is the furbee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Danternoust is ranked 123,241st in the world and 5,426th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,253.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
