The Empire of Dhan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Daniel the First and the Last with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 25.082 billion Dhanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynaad. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dhanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,940 trillion danns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,089 danns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Dhanian weed picker are way up, and any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dhan's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dhan is ranked 5,848th in the world and 305th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 18.59 bananas ingested per day.
