The Republic of Daskel is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Kanai Yūki with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 867 million Daskelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daitō Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Daskelian economy, worth 52.2 trillion Daskelian Kans a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,213 Daskelian Kans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and Kanai Yūki has just been declared ruler of Daskel in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daskel's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Daskel is ranked 29,657th in the world and 735th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,606.8 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
