The Kingdom of The Restored Danelaw is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Eadgar IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.021 billion Anglo-Danes 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorwick. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Anglo-Danish economy, worth 112 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 110,565 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Restored Danelaw's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Restored Danelaw is ranked 32,371st in the world and 12th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,576.24 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
