The Republic of Dasko is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Tramer Contie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.992 billion Daskans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arani. The average income tax rate is 93.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Daskan economy, worth a remarkable 2,636 trillion Ikatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 263,859 Ikatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dasko successfully hosted the the South Pacific Olympics, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. Crime is totally unknown. Dasko's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dasko is ranked 10,374th in the world and 328th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,457.95 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
