The Danube Monarchy

Population2.739 billion

LeaderKaiser Friedrich Grünewald-Malinówski


The Empire of The Danube Monarchy is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaiser Friedrich Grünewald-Malinówski with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.739 billion Danubians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wien. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth 262 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,770 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, the Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Danube Monarchy's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Danube Monarchy is ranked 12,384th in the world and 15th in Yuno for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,324.17 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
