The Parliamentary Republic of Dankstergrad is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Shay Castava with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.297 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danksterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,074 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 115,627 Gradios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sausages are seldomly seen in the supermarket, treason is relative, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. 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 111,327th in the world and 4,973rd in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
