The United Kingdom of Dasnar is a huge, safe nation, notable for its national health service, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 341 million Dasnarians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canaan. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Dasnarian economy, worth 23.3 trillion crescents a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,323 crescents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five, and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dasnar's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dasnar is ranked 178,134th in the world and 174th in New Western Empire for Highest Economic Output, with 23.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
