The Empire of Donaufoderation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King-Emperor Otto I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.426 billion Danubians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wien. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth 145 trillion Kroner a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,280 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Feeling like a winner comes at a price, students do more community service than homework, the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Donaufoderation's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Donaufoderation is ranked 32,656th in the world and 436th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.81 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
