The Corporate Venture State of West Danzig is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by CEO Hanz Duivel with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.518 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danzig Corporate HQ. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient West Danzigian economy, worth 549 trillion Neu Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 218,253 Neu Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,003,805 per year while the poor average 2,485, a ratio of 806 to 1.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue. 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 Economical Evangelism.

West Danzig is ranked 267,432nd in the world and 1,129th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 0.46 quips per hour.
