The Republic of Dasko is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Tramer Contie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.954 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 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Daskan economy, worth a remarkable 3,121 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 261,094 Ikatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

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, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime is totally unknown. Dasko's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dasko is ranked 2,174th in the world and 86th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,057.52 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
