The Republic of Datland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President R Reinhardt with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.85 billion Datlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Defense, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dashington. The average income tax rate is 9.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Datlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion Datcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 175,000 Datcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, the entire entry for Datland in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime is totally unknown. Datland's national animal is the Great Tit, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Datland is ranked 16,512th in the world and 215th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,740.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
