The Republic of DanCorpia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jake Gannon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.96 billion DanCorpians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dantopia. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming DanCorpian economy, worth a remarkable 1,190 trillion Dannyies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,598 Dannyies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DanCorpia's national animal is the Flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
