The Republic of Datland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President R Reinhardt with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.586 billion Datlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Datlandic economy, worth 788 trillion Datcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 171,879 Datcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime is almost non-existent. Datland's national animal is the Great Tit, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Datland is ranked 30,733rd in the world and 154th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 66.44 on the Rand Index.
