The Parliamentary Republic of Dankstergrad is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shay Castava with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.731 billion Danksterians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danksterian economy, worth 895 trillion Gradios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,871 Gradios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Danksterians, lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", and the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dankstergrad's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of All Worlds.

Dankstergrad is ranked 9,397th in the world and 287th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.01 on the Human Development Index.
