The Parliamentary Republic of Dankstergrad is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Shay Castava with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.802 billion Danksterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danksterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 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 common. Average income is an impressive 113,468 Gradios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, third world countries are rich in "I Love Savannah" t-shirts, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. 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 12,751st in the world and 402nd in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 91,891.37 Standard Monetary Units.
