The Corporate Venture State of West Danzig is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by CEO Hanz Duivel with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.483 billion Danzigians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danzig Corporate HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient West Danzigian economy, worth 257 trillion Neu Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 173,512 Neu Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 861,979 per year while the poor average 19,758, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

Interest in globalism never flags, small shoes often wash up on the beach, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and the first step of recovery from alcoholism usually entails buying a bicycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. West Danzig's national animal is the Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The All-Mighty Dollar.

West Danzig is ranked 165,026th in the world and 1,106th in Europe for Most Income Equality, scoring 2.29 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
