The Dictatorship of DanCorpia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jake Gannon with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.167 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 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming DanCorpian economy, worth 991 trillion Dannyies a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,155 Dannyies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, the DanCorpian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", many friends and relatives of Jake Gannon have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and most ambassadors from DanCorpia retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DanCorpia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

DanCorpia is ranked 7,631st in the world and 440th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.01 Years.
