Danhela

Population199 million

The Federation of Danhela is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 199 million Danhelans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Danhelan economy, worth 5.91 trillion Cogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 29,704 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danhela's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Danhela is ranked 114,813th in the world and 6th in Traa for Most Extreme, scoring 16.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
