The Returning to Defending of Daynor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Rand Fairless with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.48 billion Daynes enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Friedburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Daynish economy, worth a remarkable 5,141 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 180,528 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Friedburg River, drowning sailors are hung out to dry, criminals are thrown to the crows to repay their debt to society, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Daynor's national animal is the crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Daynorism.

Daynor is ranked 257,545th in the world and 6,934th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -30.17 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
